BABA Young Professionals

The launch of the Young Professionals' Group took place on October 14, 2010 at a sold-out event at the British Embassy. To participate in future Young Professionals' events, please click here to Join BABA.

BABA believes that it is important to have a diverse membership that involves professionals at every stage of their careers. In particular, BABA has a keen interest to promote and involve young professionals in the organization. To encourage younger members, BABA organizes special networking events on their behalf and also runs a mentor matching service that pairs BABA young professionals based on their interests with senior BABA professionals with complementary career experiences. The mentors will keep in contact with the young professionals for up to a full year and meet at least twice in person for a face-to-face career building discussion.
