The Young Professionals of Chattanooga (YPC) and the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce congratulate members of the 2020-21 class of Protégé Chattanooga. This diverse group of early and mid-career professionals represent a variety of industry sectors across the Chattanooga region including hospitality, financial services, nonprofit, public relations, education and more.
Designed to help emerging talent develop their professional and civic leadership skills, Protégé Chattanooga is an immersive, team-based mentoring program. Over the course of nine months, participants will connect with their peers and distinguished community mentors to develop and enhance their potential as emerging business and civic leaders in the Chattanooga area. Protégé Chattanooga activities this year will be virtual for the foreseeable future.
“Protégé Chattanooga continues to provide a platform for diverse young professionals to learn from dynamic leaders in the Chattanooga region,” says Miles Huff, Chamber Senior Director of Talent Initiatives. “The mentees are engaged with diverse leaders from across many sectors, and graduate with a greater knowledge of how they can use their unique skillsets to impact our community. We at the Chamber can’t wait to watch these leaders do great things together this year.”
