R-Ladies Santa Barbara welcomes special guest, Jenny Bryan
We are so lucky to have Jenny Bryan as a special guest for our next R-Ladies event! Jenny is a Software Engineer at RStudio, Professor at UBC, R-Lady and creator of humane R packages including googlesheets and usethis. We are still working out the event topic but it is sure to be a good one! We will update event info with more details as we get closer to the date. This will be a popular event so please only RSVP if you can attend. As always we welcome people regardless of gender, but our group is intended for those who identify with a gender minority (trans women, cis women, trans men, non-binary, other). We expect all attendees to abide by our Code of Conduct.

    What we're about

    R-Ladies Santa Barbara 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 non-profit, civil society 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!

    A local chapter of R-Ladies Global, R-Ladies Santa Barbara exists to promote gender diversity in the R community, both locally and worldwide. 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 and/or 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.

    We are part of Global R-Ladies group. Here are some links! You can access our presentations, R scripts and more (soon) on our Github account and follow us on twitter to stay up to date about R-Ladies news!

    PS Community Policies & Code of Conduct:

    The leadership, mentoring & teaching roles within this Community are held exclusively by minority genders (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 deems appropriate. Anyone involved with R-Ladies Santa Barbara 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.

    Full community guidelines are found here: https://github.com/rladies/starter-kit/wiki
