Q: I'm not a frequent R user, and I'm afraid I won't understand the presentations. A: No worries! Our meetups are open to people from all levels and also aim for networking. We also encourage to ask questions if something is not clear.
Q: I'm a guy, and it seems this meetup is only for women. A: This group is mainly aimed at minority genders (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender) but is open to all that agree to the CoC (https://rladies.org/code-of-conduct/). However, leadership roles remain reserved for minority genders.
PS Community Policies & Code of Conduct:
The leadership, mentoring & teaching roles within this Community are held exclusively by minority genders (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender) (majority gender speakers may be allowed/invited as one-off guests in exceptional circumstances at the leadership team's discretion). Due to unexpected demand, we have opened learning participation to all genders, dependent on initial and on-going vetting by the leadership team. However, the stated priority of the R-Ladies communities is the development & support specifically of those identifying as a minority gender, and we therefore reserve the right to guard this interest through whatever measures the leadership team deem appropriate. Anyone involved with R-Ladies Lausanne is expected to fully respect each other, the mandate of this community, and the goodwill on which R-Ladies is founded, or face expulsion/a penalty of any form, at the discretion of the leadership team.
