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