Launching R- Ladies Amsterdam!

Apr 12, 2018 · Amsterdam, Netherlands

]R- Ladies is finally in Amsterdam! We are happy to announce that our first meetup will be held on 12th April. Join us for the launch of Amsterdam’s first R community for women! Everyone with interest in the R language and supports diversity in the field is welcome!

For our kick-off- event we would like to present you with the ideas and motivation driving the global R- Ladies community and some statistics that triggered us to create R- Ladies here in Amsterdam. We would also like to discuss with you topics of your interest and plan the year ahead of us. To do so, we created the survey to get an idea of your interests and skill- level. If you have not yet done so, please fill out the survey (https://goo.gl/forms/5XcMHtesgZcepMBr1). Feel free to fill out the survey even if you cannot make it to the meeting, so we can pick speakers and topics that are of most interest to you!

We would also like to get to know you. Therefore, everyone will get the opportunity to introduce themselves in a few minutes, share your passion for R or some work you have done with R. This is not obligatory of course, but we’d love to get to know you, no matter if you are a complete newbie to R, intermediate or professional R- user! If you would like to show some slides, please email ([masked]) them to us by 8th April.

Additionally, we are super excited to be having Min Fang as our first speaker! She is a data scientist at Trivago in Amsterdam and she will inspire you with “The life-changing magic of tidying up”!

Edit: As if it's not already exciting enough, we will also have a special guest Ineke Scheffers, founder of GirlCode paying us a visit, and inspiring us with how she contributes to increasing gender diversity in the world of programming!

Know other people interested in R? Bring them along!
Please only RSVP if you can come!
We are so much looking forward to meeting all enthusiastic R- Ladies of Amsterdam!

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. R-Lad
