RoCur details

About

The R-Ladies RoCur (Rotating Curation) is a twitter handle that will feature an awesome R-Lady each week. This account is run by R-Ladies Global.

Objectives

  1. To encourage and maintain Twitter engagement within the R-Ladies community.
  2. To spotlight female and minority genders (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender) and their great work in R.

How It Works

Every week, a different R-Lady takes over our twitter account to talk about the work they do in R. Featured curators come from a diversity of professions and have a range of experiences in R, from novice to expert.

If you are interested in becoming a curator, see our Be a Curator section (below) and sign up here.

Check out @WeAreRLadies every Monday for a new curator!

Be a Curator!

We are always looking for R-users to be a featured curator for our account! Everyone is welcome; R-Ladies encourages R-users of all professional backgrounds and experience levels to curate this account. Additionally, individuals do not need to be affiliated with R-Ladies to curate. Featured curators must meet the following criteria:

  • Curators must identify as cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender.
  • Curators do not need to be affiliated with R-Ladies; however, curators need to register in the R-Ladies directory if they haven’t yet.
  • Curators must be individuals (i.e. an R-Ladies Chapter cannot be a featured curator; however, an organizer from a local chapter may curate and tweet about chapter events).
  • By signing on to be a curator of @WeAreRLadies you agree to our Curator Agreement that is outlined in our RoCur Curator Guide.
