R-Ladies is an international network focused on promoting gender diversity in the R community, an open code programming environment that is widely used for data manipulation. The initiative was started in 2012, by researcher and data science specialist Gabriela de Queiroz. Today, there are almost 180 local groups in 48 countries, and the figure continues to grow. A group of researchers created R-Ladies Bilbao and then approached Wikitoki to carry out several workshops.
Wikitoki started to work with R-Ladies Bilbao in 2019 on an ad hoc basis, with their collaboration becoming closer in 2020.
Associated projects are those that are not related in any structural sense to Wikitoki (they do not participate in its work or decision-making structure) but are related thematically or relationally. These projects may be supported by different Wikitoki resources (financial, spatial, communications, etc.), and may use the space continuously as a meeting point and/or place of reference, providing Wikitoki with a previously agreed fee in exchange.
