Mentor Program – Winter Party at Imaginuity Interactive

One of the perks of the Mentor program is networking with marketing professionals and connecting with advertising and marketing agencies. It’s become a tradition to host our winter party at a cool digital agency. Ascend Marketing opened its doors to the Mentor program last year.

This year, Imaginuity Interactive hosted us on January 13, 2016. It was fun to tour the old Sears Building where Imaginuity is located and learn about the history of the agency. The DFW AMA Mentor Program would like to thank Corbett Guest, the CEO of Imaginuity Interactive for being a great host.

Mentor Program – Women’s Only Event

The ladies from the DFW AMA Mentor Program gathered for their annual informal wine and cheese party on November 19th. Mentors and Protégés shared their personal stories of how they climbed the career ladder, broke through the glass ceiling and struggled to balance their personal and work lives. Lots of laughter and the cozy atmosphere of one of our Mentor’s homes helped the ladies from the program to de-stress and bond with each other.
