Upcoming Events

R-Ladies Global

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.

Find material on other chapters meetups at this github repository (search for repositories named meetup-presentations_TOWN).


There is also an R-Ladies Remote chapter for people that either work remotely, or have no local chapter nearby.

R-Ladies Lausanne

The chapter in Lausanne was founded in November 2017.

We are currently two organisers (if you’d like to help - drop us a line!)

Inactive organizers are Sina Rüeger , Andrea Komljenovic and Sarvenaz Choobdar .
