How the Program Works
A pitch competition will be held for interested mentees (mid to senior-level marketers) to earn time with one of the Executive Mentors. Adweek will qualitatively evaluate every pitch and assign the strongest pitch for each mentor based on the merit of submission. If chosen, the mentee earns two 30-minute phone calls with their mentor and Adweek will help prepare both the mentee and the mentor for success.

What Our Mentors Are Saying
“It is an unwritten commandment in the preservation and advancement of any craft or culture: knowledge has to be shared. Mentoring, therefore, is an obligation for those who love their craft. To know is to love. To love is to share. To share is to transcend.”
“I think the dynamism of a marketing career is one of the aspects that makes it so attractive… but that dynamism can make it hard to navigate. I’ve loved being a mentor in this program and only wish it had existed when I was earlier in my own career.”
