Diversity Initiative Update: Mentoring and conference organization

As part of the diversity initiative we in the beginning focused on putting systems into place to ensure that everyone can feel safe within our community. A major step was the adoption of the CoC and establishing of the CARE team, and maybe even more so by discussions within our community. We have made huge strides forward in creatking more positive atmosphere on the Symfony devs Slack. However, the obvious next step is to actively invite new developers to join our community and empower existing members to take the next step in making their voices heard. For this reason we published two new sections in our documentation: one for general mentoring and one for speaker mentoring.
