What we’re about

R-Ladies Chicago was founded in July 2017 with the goal of supporting women and gender minorities who use R. Anyone with an interest in R is welcome - our group includes data scientists, career transitioners, academic researchers, industry experts, students, interested individuals, and others. Whether you're a beginner or an expert, we encourage you to attend a monthly Meetup! 

Past R-Ladies events have included R workshops, career panels, networking events, and talks from package developers. If you're interested in sharing your work at a R-Ladies event, we encourage you to reach out to

You can also find materials from past events at our Github, learn about upcoming events at our Twitter, and participate in discussions outside of our monthly events in our community Slack (request an invite from!).
