Meet The ADPList100: Most Impactful Mentors of 2022

Meet The ADPList100: Most Impactful Mentors of 2022

The inaugural ADPList100 2022 marks the first time we’re collectively shining a spotlight on our top contributing and most beloved mentors. Everything we’ve accomplished as a platform, every milestone this community has attained, was only made possible because of the selfless acts of generosity our mentors have displayed. We’re recognising the effort and energy put into the millions of mentorship minutes, the hundreds of thousands of members you’ve empowered, the invaluable impact you’ve driven.

While we would have loved to acknowledge every single mentor, we must aim for brevity! As it is, we have already exceeded 100. From pioneers, leaders, and designers to product managers, developers, and marketers, here are the most impactful mentors of 2022.

A special shout out from us to you, for giving so much of yourself to others.

This year’s ADPList100 honorees bring a lot to the table. We all recognize that the world is facing great uncertainty now, which makes the work fellow mentors are doing all the more valuable. From innovative ways of mentoring the world and sharing knowledge, to organizing community events —their spirit of giving and forward-thinking vision shows leadership and optimism. They are redefining the future of mentorship and careers in tech.

Thank you so much for all you have done and all you will do throughout your journey at ADPList to democratize mentorship for all.

Once again, congratulations on making this list.
