What we're about

R Ladies is a worldwide organization whose mission is to promote gender diversity in the R community. We welcome 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.

The R community suffers from an underrepresentation of women* in every area and area of participation, whether as leaders, package developers, conference speakers, conference participants, or users. R Ladies' mission is to achieve proportionate gender representation by encouraging, empowering, educating, and inspiring the minorities currently underrepresented in the R community.

*All references to "women" or "female" are fully inclusive and intersectional. We whole-heartedly welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary folks of all races and ethnicities. Men who support the mission are welcome to attend meetings as a guest of a member. We do not currently accept men as new members of the group in order to maintain a safe space atmosphere.
