Mentoring Program Announcement

The lack of diversity in the technical world is a chronic, pervasive issue. For example, a 2021 global software developer survey showed that female software developers are only 5 percent of the population. This is something we need to change.

To help promote diversity in our industry, Gradle is excited to announce a new mentorship program. The program is open to everyone, but we’ll be prioritizing mentees from underrepresented segments of the developer community, including women, and Black and Hispanic individuals, who want support and enhanced professional development from members of the Gradle Build Tool community. Mentees in the program will have access to personalized discussions on using Gradle Build Tool, build automation, developer productivity and more.

Members of our Gradle Fellowship are volunteering their time towards establishing a diverse developer landscape. The Gradle Fellows will be matched with more junior community members (mentees) seeking to learn and enhance skills that will help further their career.

If you are new to Gradle Build Tool and looking for growth, submit your application or share our program with others in need.


Let us know if you have any questions on our forums or Gradle Community Slack.
