Q: Are men welcome to attend R-Ladies events?
A: Yes, men are welcome at this event – however, our primary mission is to encourage more women and non-binary individuals to get involved in the R community. Please help us by spreading the word about R-Ladies, and by being respectful of the fact that this event is primarily for women/non-binary/female-identifying individuals.
