This is part of a first step towards starting an R-Ladies Oxford local chapter. It is born out of a desire to have an inclusive, friendly, positive space to share skills, ideas, tips, hints and tricks in the R universe. We are still setting everything up, but hope to be with you in the first half of 2020. Watch this space!
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!
