The University of South Florida is partnering with the Manasota Black Chamber of Commerce (MBCC) to present a mentoring program that matches students from the Sarasota-Manatee campus with local executives. The program, called “Shadow an Executive Day,” debuted three years ago with the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce and Manatee Chamber of Commerce to help students learn about professions to make informed career choices. This year, it’s being expanded to include the MBCC, which represents Black and other minority-owned businesses in Manatee and Sarasota counties. The program is set for Feb. 12. It will be held virtually because of Covid-19 protocols; this year's Shadow Day will include remarks by USF Sarasota-Manatee campus Regional Chancellor Karen A. Holbrook and special guest Jazmyne Barney, regulatory affairs manager at Procter & Gamble.
