What we're about

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!

Meaningful data visualisations in R ggplot2

40 Mercer Street

Welcome to the first R-Ladies Wellington meetup event!

In this event, we will be focusing on the R package ggplot2 for data visualisation. The workshop will cover the basics of the package and how to use it to create meaningful and informative graphics that effectively communicate your data's message.

In addition to the workshop, we will have some time set aside for networking, where you can connect with other R coders and build new connections within the community. We encourage attendees to bring along their laptops and any datasets they would like to work with during the workshop.

We would like to express our gratitude to Nicholson Consulting for generously offering their space to support the establishment of the R-Ladies community in Wellington.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please note: this event has a capacity limit, and we may not be able to accommodate additional attendees beyond that limit. However, we will be sharing a video recording and slides of the workshop after the event for those who are unable to attend in person.
