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 email@example.com.
Meet up with R-Ladies Chicago after Chicago's first one-day R conference happening at the end of April, SatRday Chicago!
We'll be meeting up at the post-conference happy hour at Roosevelt University. R-Ladies from out of town will be at the event, and we'd like to welcome them :)
Attendance at the conference is not required for *female and non-binary individuals* to join R-Ladies at the happy hour. We encourage our male allies to buy a ticket and attend the conference! Tickets are cheap - $50 for professionals, $25 for students, and the event will feature over 35 speakers (!) and food.
If you're looking for a day of R learning and networking, check out the schedule and get a ticket to SatRday Chicago here: https://chicago2019.satrdays.org/
