We host a regular gathering of women, minority identities, and allies to network and develop skills in R, a coding language scientists are increasingly using to analyze and organize data. R-Ladies Santa Barbara is a local chapter of the global R-Ladies organization, and the chapter was founded by two of our resident data scientists.
The mission of R-Ladies Global is to promote gender diversity in the R community.
The Santa Barbara Chapter welcomes members from all levels of R proficiency and from all sectors - you do not need to be a scientist.
NCEAS is proud to host this group, especially as diversity and open science are among our values as an organization.
