I have some family obligations that day so I can’t attend but this sounds pretty cool. If you are open to non-Mozillians you could also try reaching out to Chicago Women Devs — https://twitter.com/CWDevs / contact at cwdevs.com

It's an all-day event, but if you can only be there for a part of the day, that could work! Mentoring is not only one of the most important way for new contributors to join the Mozilla community, it also provides lasting positive impact for you, the mentor. We're looking for in-person mentors, but could be amenable to a remote situation.

Open Source Comes to Campus Mentors walk students through contribution to Open Source, whether it's submitting a patch or bug or other kinds of contribution. (This can include projects you're working on, tools you use to work in the open, and other tools.)
