The AmCham Mentorship Program

With its unique cross-industry orientation and global approach, the AmCham Mentorship Program offers a dynamic, internationally-minded arena for leadership development.  The program, entering its fourth year, pairs emerging corporate talent with seasoned executives from AmCham member companies. The end result: a collaborative arena that fosters innovation, prepares young leaders for the challenges of today’s international business environment, and forges strong bonds between AmCham member companies.

Developing Leaders for the Global Economy of the 21st Century

Taking note of the growing importance of global trends such as sustainability and the accelerating pace of digitalization/automation, the AmCham Mentorship Program enables participants to better understand how different industries deal with common challenges – an exchange of ideas, best practices, and experiences that has become a hallmark of the program.

Participants also discuss traditional challenges and opportunities in regard to global operations, touching on themes ranging from the value of diversity to global strategy formulations. Through these discussions, mentees gain a first-hand look at what works and what doesn’t, whereas mentors gain a fresh perspective on long-standing issues, perspectives that can challenge conventional thinking and inspire new approaches.

AmCham's Mentorship Program is one of the best learning programs I've ever participated in.

How It Works

Participating Patron-level member companies provide one mentee and one mentor for the nine-month program. Mentees and mentors are then paired off across industries, based on common interests and goals. Then through six individual meetings, the pairs discuss challenges, debate strategy, and explore the meaning of leadership in international companies.
