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 the common challenges in mentorship, how it inspired an open source approach, and talk about the lessons learned. The result is Mentorship Guide, an open source project which provides strategies, tools, resources, advice and community support.

Guedis will discuss the common obstacles in mentoring and how given these challenges, an open source strategy was best. He will discuss the challenges in open sourcing the guide and share practical techniques so that anyone can start open sourcing guides in other important topics.

Finally, learn what's next in version 2.0 and how the community can get involved so that mentoring is an accessible, insightful and rewarding experience for everyone involved.
