Founded on the principle science should not be limited by your occupation, race, nationality or economic status, working in the open makes science more accessible by making methods, code, results and knowledge available to anyone, anywhere in the world. Imagine if every analysis you ever conduct from now on could be reproduced by anyone around the world. Or a method that gives you the power to integrate new data seamlessly complete with figures. In this workshop, we will be covering how to work in the open using R, R Markdown and Google Sheets. These three platforms allow us to host data, analyze, visualize data in one reproducible workflow. At the end of the workshop we will also discuss the wider movement of open science, how it is helping breakdown economic barriers in science and how you can contribute. This workshop will be led by Monica Granados.

I already know R, what's in it for me? Awesome! Come join a community of women interested in STEM research, meet new pals, learn new skills or sharpen old ones, or talk to us about leading a workshop on a topic you're passionate about!
I don't identify as a lady, but I still want to learn R - can I join? Yes! While we prioritize female leadership, our general membership is fully inclusive.
I'm interested in leading a workshop! How to I get in touch? Great! You don't even need to be a full fledged "expert" to lead a workshop... this is a group for skill swapping. If you're interested, send us an email at email@example.com.
