R-Ladies is a world-wide organization to promote gender diversity in the R community.
Our next event (Mine Çetinkaya-Runde introducing the tidyverse framework) will be held on December 3rd 2019 → see meetup page for more informations.
The mission of R-Ladies is to achieve proportionate representation of genders currently underrepresented in the R community by encouraging, inspiring, and empowering them.
R-Ladies Global provides support to local (and remote) chapters that exist around the world.
Chapters are somewhat similar to R-user groups.
There are plenty of chapters around the world, listed here.
There is also an app that lists the current meetups and a map that shows the evolution over time.

The chapter in Lausanne was founded in November 2017.
