“I can’t imagine what people in Ukraine are going through right now. Lots of love to all mentors and mentees with relatives and family living there.”
As the war unfolded yesterday in Ukraine, many of our mentors have expressed how concerned they are for the situation there. Politics aside, war brings destruction and distress. Its repercussions last decades.
We had reached out to our Ukraine mentors and mentees yesterday to find out if there is anything that we could help with. Today, we are launching the following initiatives to empower our community to show their support for those impacted by the war together.
To educate everyone interested about what is happening now in the Ukraine-Russia Conflict, followed by a brainstorming session about how we can make our contributions. Bring your friends, share it - help educate them.
For you to show your support and solidarity for the people in Ukraine in public. Request yours from our Mentor Slack Club (@Steph). You can use this Swag to share your message and direct your network to support or join our Fundraise Workshop.
If you are not a mentor with us now and would still like to join us in this community effort to support and show solidarity for Ukraine, please get yours here. You can use this Swag to share your message and direct your network to support or join our Fundraise Workshop.
Despite having been in turmoil for the past eight years, Ukraine has produced some of the best technology products the world has ever seen, such as GitLab and Grammarly.
