Since mentorship means different things to people and there is no current one size fits all approach, what if ... we applied open source principles and technologies to mentorship?

Mentorship is at the heart of fostering inclusive, collaborative and innovative communities. It simultaneously helps the mentee, the mentor and our community as a whole. However, despite its benefits and progress made, mentorship is still not accessible to all.

This presentation will explore how we can better share strategies, resources, peer advice, community support, and connect the wonderful, broader mentorship initiatives going on. Additionally, how can we build services, APIs, and tooling that accelerate mentorship endeavors. Something built by the people, for the people -- empowering mentors, mentees, and those looking to get started.

Learn about the progress made so far and how you + open source principles and technologies can make mentorship a more accessible and inclusive experience.
