ABOUT:
The Asian American Advertising Federation is proud to announce the formation of a Young Professionals Group to attract and create a community for young Asian American Pacific Islanders in the marketing, advertising, and creative industry. As an often underrepresented and fragmented group within these fields, the Young Professionals program seeks to serve as a learning resource for young talent, connecting them with established industry professionals to empower them in their careers. It also seeks to serve as a learning opportunity & resource for the industry professionals to connect with up & coming talent – which hopes to provide them with insights into the new generation of consumer advocates.

Young Professionals (Mentees) and Industry Professionals (Mentors) will be matched through the program and will meet once a month over the period of six months. Each month there will be a specific theme or topic to discuss, set by 3AF steering committee, which will provide an opportunity for Mentors and Mentees to learn from one another, hopefully forging a long term relationship.

Young Professionals will also get a chance to connect with one another in the program through monthly speaker series, workshops, and happy hours. Not only will they get a chance to learn from Industry Professionals, but they’ll get a chance to learn from others like them whom are going through similar stages in their professional careers from all around the Country.

Young Professionals will also receive other perks, like opportunities to meet & greet with 3AF Board, early access & discounts to workshops & panels, and other industry resources.
