On November 15, the AABANY Mentorship Program for 2016-2017 officially kicked off at Baker & McKenzie! Over wine, beer, and good company, mentors and mentees were able to meet – many for the first time – at Baker & McKenzie’s New York offices with the beautiful New York City skyline as the backdrop.

Thank you to all who attended, including participants of this year’s program, Baker & McKenzie attorneys, and friends of AABANY. We would especially like to thank Harry Valetk and Baker & McKenzie for acting as the AABANY Mentorship Program Exclusive Sponsor 2016-2017. We are so happy to have their support in creating a meaningful program for diverse attorneys in New York. We look forward to the upcoming events!

This year, we are emphasizing the importance of connection and conversation beyond small talk. If you have any ideas or suggestions for what types of events you would like to see, reach out to us. For information about AABANY’s Mentorship Program, contact Coordinators Edward Kang and David Sohn
