As announced last week the Contributor Working Group of the Make/Community team is relaunching with an exclusive focus on building a Projectwide Mentorship Program for WordPress. The group will have its initial chat today to formally kick off work on the mentorship program.
Inaugural Meeting times
To make accommodations for as many timezones as possible, we will be holding these chats in multiple timezones:
The chat will be held on the #community-team channel of the Make/WordPress Slack. Here’s the link to a handy `.ics` file which contains calendar entries for our upcoming chat, so that you won’t miss it. These chats have also been added to the Make/Meetings calendar. Everyone who is interested in building a mentorship program is welcome to attend these chats.
