Know some R? Share with our team!

As we gear up for our third year of R-Ladies #LdnOnt, we are actively looking for people who would be interested in presenting a tutorial at one of our future meet ups. Our presenters have ranged from relatively new R users all the way up to seasoned R experts; the ideal R-Ladies tutorial presenter would fall anywhere along that continuum!

Goal: Skill-swapping

Our main goal is to provide an environment in which people interested in learning R can share their skills and learn with other like-minded folks. As such, you don’t need to know everything there is to know about R (very few of those people exist, in any case) - you just need to have one topic that you feel you know well enough to be able to share it with a group.

Anatomy of an R-Ladies #LdnOnt tutorial

Our tutorials typically involve approximately 1 - 1.5 hours of content, which includes a combination of presentation and hands-on exercises. There’s no set structure, but if you’d like to check out past tutorials to get a sense, visit our Past Events page!

While we typically host our meet ups one the same day of the week (this year will be Thursdays) in the evening (typically 5pm), we are flexible - just mention it!

A note on what we mean when we say R-“Ladies”

R-Ladies Global “is a worldwide organization whose mission is to promote gender diversity in the R community.” While all of our meet ups remain 100% inclusive, we do ask that our presenters identify as non(cis)-males (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender). That is, while cis men are welcome to attend, we prioritize underrepresented gender identities in our leadership roles. Feel free to scope out the R-Ladies Global Mission Statement and Code of Conduct for more information. Still have questions? Don’t hesitate to email the R-Ladies #LdnOnt leaders, Thea and Sally.
