Best Career Advice I’ve Received:

“You should never consider it normal to have someone talking down to you simply because you’re a woman or that your education or experience level is perceived as lower. You’re a professional before anything, your opinion matters too.” – Sophie Zangs, Orolia’s Product Marketing Manager

Best Advice:

“Learn early and practice often the life skill of accepting critique or constructive feedback without internalizing it. There will be countless critics in life, naysayers, people who don’t believe in you or undervalue you entirely. Allow criticism to be the fuel that pushes you forward instead of the catalyst that withers your confidence and stunts your personal growth. Don’t give anyone who doesn’t believe in you the pleasure of knowing they caused you to not believe in yourself.” – Paige Lyndaker, Orolia’s Social Media & Events Marketing Manager

What Makes Me Resilient?

A lesson I learned from my Mom is to keep moving forward. Sometimes the steps are small, but any progress is good. When I am struggling, I often think back to what would she do. It helps me put things in perspective and gives me strength. I realize it’s a process, I’m not alone, and not everything needs to be resolved overnight. She was my first example of an amazingly strong, intelligent and gracious woman. Trying to make her proud is what makes me resilient.” – Leisa Butler, Orolia’s Business Development Manager, Simulation Strategic Partnerships

What Makes Me Resilient?

“Display confidence. No matter your job. If you are unsure about the answer, look into it after the fact and don’t be afraid to go back and adjust your recommendation. But make sure you do it all with confidence.” – Isabelle Melody, Orolia’s General Counsel & Compliance Lawyer

My Best Advice:

“Find people that value your personal and professional growth, and who help concentrate on your strengths rather than your weaknesses. When an employee is surrounded by people and are a part of an environment that support them, then they have an opportunity to thrive. Also, a great work-ethic, being a good listener, and a positive attitude will take you farther in your career than you may realize.” – Mollie Hamilton, Orolia’s Sourcing and Procurement Specialist

What Makes Me Resilient?

“My grandfather was a hardworking farmer in a small village in India. His short presence in my life was very impactful. A farmer’s life is full of surprises and extreme hard work. He taught me that in any situation, do not let your emotions overpower your intelligence. Be resilient.” – Aruna Thakar, Orolia’s Business Systems & IT Specialist

What Inspires Me:

“Susan B. Anthony said that “Whenever women gather together, failure is impossible.” – I’ve learned through other women that strength can take many forms. I’m inspired by all the ways we express this concept and what we can accomplish when working together on things we’re passionate about.” – Alaysia Gilbert, Orolia’s Quality Engineer

What Inspires Me:

“Communication is key. There is never any value in making assumptions and not asking questions. We might not always get the answers we want, but we’ll never know if we don’t communicate. If you keep this in mind, it is then also helpful for your colleagues to try to be as communicative and transparent as possible in return so that you can encourage open and bidirectional conversations as a general practice. This will make so many other challenges easier to tackle.” – Janis DeWitt, Orolia’s Senior Engineering Manager
