Mentorship

    Our mentorship program is aimed at providing a mechanism for members early in their careers to tap into the wisdom and perspective of more seasoned professionals and a means for seasoned professionals to get introduced to the next generation of professionals in our industry.

    How it works:

    • Experienced financial professionals will be assigned motivated mentees for one year on a one-to-one basis
    • All attempts will be made to pair mentors and mentees in similar areas of the financial industry, geographies, and other considerations that will facilitate the relationship
    • The CFA Society Atlanta mentorship committee will connect participants and provide guidelines for interacting throughout the year
    • It will be recommended to connect a minimum of 4 times throughout the year and at least twice in person
