“A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.” — Bob Proctor
The MJAA Mentorship Program helps Asian professionals gain the skills and strategies necessary to become the leaders of tomorrow. Mentees are matched to a close-knit mentorship family led by an Asian executive mentor, who has excelled in their chosen field. Mentors provide personalized feedback for each mentee to help them achieve their goals, overcome career challenges, and accelerate their career growth.
The program also provides in-depth training through a series of focused workshops to develop key skills in business leadership, management, and communication.
Who Should Attend?
The MJAA Mentorship program is ideal for early- to mid-career Asian professionals with at least 3 years of experience in U.S. or global companies, looking to advance their management and leadership skills.
The program focuses on developing skills to help:
We are honored to have these successful executives share their knowledge, wisdom, and experience with us. Their perspectives in framing problems, adopting the proper mindsets, and overcoming challenges related to diversity and inclusion, have provided the foundation on which mentees are able to build their own career success.
The program also provides in-depth training through a series of focused workshops to develop key skills in leadership, management, and communication.
