R-Ladies Baltimore (Bmore) is the local Baltimore chapter for the larger R-Ladies global organization (rladies.org) to promote gender diversity in the R community.
We will have an event on Wednesday September 18, 2019 from 5:30-7pm
(location TBA). We will kickoff our Fall 2019 events with a meetup discussing data presentations and data products using R Markdown, enabling reproducible data analyses. We are also aiming for discussing strategies on structuring your data analysis folders. We are excited to have Ariel Gershman and McKinzie Garrison both from the Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology (BCMB) Graduate Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine give presentations.
WHO is this for?
- If you are new to R & are short-budgeted on time!
- If you have to make a report or presentation from the results of your analysis with R code, but don't know how!
- If you want to learn about alternative forms of data products with R!

Q: Are men welcome to attend R-Ladies events?
A: Yes, men are welcome at this event. Our mission is to encourage more women and non-binary individuals to get involved in the R community. However, we ask that cis men come as guests of women and gender minorities to our events to promote a sense support and encouragement for women and gender minorities in the R community. Please help us by spreading the word about R-Ladies. Please also take the time to review our code of conduct before you attend: https://github.com/rladies/starter-kit/wiki/Code-of-Conduct
The term "women and gender minorities" is inclusive of individuals who identify as female (trans and cis), trans-men, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, intersex, and all minority genders).
