What we're about

This is a local chapter of R-Ladies Global ( https://www.rladies.org ), an organisation that promotes gender diversity in the R community worldwide. We meetup in person or virtually to learn about the R programming language, algorithms and advanced tools.

R-Ladies welcomes members of all R proficiency levels, whether you're a new or aspiring R user, or an experienced R programmer interested in mentoring, networking & expert upskilling. Our community is designed to develop our members' R skills & knowledge through social, collaborative learning & sharing. Supporting minority identity access to STEM skills & careers, the Free Software Movement, and contributing to the global R community!

We are pro-actively inclusive of queer, trans, and all minority identities, with additional sensitivity to intersectional identities. Our priority is to provide a safe community space for anyone identifying as a minority gender who is interested in working with R. As a founding principle, there is no cost or charge to participate in any of our R-Ladies communities around the world. You can access our presentations, R scripts, and Projects on our Github account ( https://github.com/rladies ) and follow us on twitter ( https://twitter.com/RLadiesGlobal ) to stay up to date about R-Ladies news!

Improving your data visualisations in R

Online event

TOPIC
This event will be led by Dr Sophie Hardy (https://sophiehardy.co.uk/). Sophie is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Warwick and is one of the co-founders of R-Ladies Coventry!

Clear and transparent data visualisation is essential for the effective interpretation and communication of science, and is a topic that Sophie is passionate about! The talk will begin with a brief overview of the common pitfalls of typical data visualisation methods (e.g., bar plots). Following this, Sophie will show three different types of data visualisations that are effective at showing off the full story of your dataset, and walk you through the code for making these plots in R.

There is nothing to prepare in advance. The resources for the workshop (including PowerPoint slides, a R markdown html file and the original R code used to create the tutorial) are freely available to download here: https://osf.io/e63br/
