Most CNCF projects want to participate in new contributor mentoring programs, but it's hard to get started -- and it's even harder to be successful. Meet the new Mentoring Working Group, who will help you with information, resources, and peer coaching. We'll also be introducing an exciting new program. LFX, GSOC, Outreach, and others let you grow and diversity project contributors through mentoring. We'll talk about the existing programs, how you can get involved, and ways to minimize the work involved. We'll also review how you can help build up the Mentorship WG to assist all CNCF projects, mentors, and mentees. We'll also introduce a new regional program, He Waka Eke Noa/HWEN, which is helping New Zealand and Maori students get involved in cloud native without leaving home. This program can serve as a model for new ways to recruit non-traditional contributors. You'll learn what you need to get started or become more successful in your project mentorship efforts.
