BALTIMORE, MD — The American Marketing Association Baltimore Chapter (AMA Baltimore) is pleased to announce the launch of its 2020-2021 Mentor Connections program. This mentoring program provides tomorrow’s marketing leaders with a unique opportunity for professional growth. AMA Baltimore’s Mentor Connections program is accepting applications until January 17, 2021.  

Mentor Connections is a mentorship program that pairs established marketing experts with future marketing leaders to facilitate the exchange of ideas and knowledge. Mentees will engage with mentors to learn more about the marketing profession, discover potential career paths, and gain insights and advice on career development.

“We are excited for another great year of our Mentor Connections program,” said Steve Kozak, VP Mentorship and Professional Development. “Now in its 5th year, the program has afforded dozens of early and mid-level marketing professionals the opportunity to gain insight into their careers and grow professionally. We look forward to continuing to facilitate connections in the Baltimore marketing community.”

Mentees will be paired with mentors who have a broad range of marketing experience and specialization, from entrepreneurs to senior marketing executives. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, meetings this year may take place virtually vs. in-person. Mentors from prior years have represented some of Baltimore’s prominent companies, including T. Rowe Price, BGE, Walden University, R2integrated, Stanley Black & Decker, IBM and Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Takafuni Watanabe, a student at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School and participant in the 2017-2018 Mentor Connections stated, “I strongly believe that mentorship positively affected my life…I strongly recommend and encourage people who have great ambition to participate in this program.”

Limited spots are available. Both AMA members and non-members are encouraged to apply before December 18, 2020. Full program details and application criteria are available at the AMA Baltimore website
