Mary: I think something unique about me Is that I'm very adaptable in situations. not just in my work life, but in my personal life as well. 00:00:10:19 - 00:00:13:20 I think that being able to kind of like pivot and change and kind of take constructive criticism and use it as a way to improve or come up with new solutions. Hi, my name is Mary Sarafin. I'm the product branding strategist here at Displays2go. My favorite part of working for Displays2go probably is the opportunity to work with so many different teams and I think that it allows you to really create 00:00:39:13 - 00:00:41:14 a lot of great relationships from the start. If there's an opportunity for like a new position or a new role that interests you, they're always willing to kind of hire within and help people grow and get to where they want in their careers. If I could change my role with anyone else in Displays2go, I think one that really interests me is Patrick Kelly's. He is the Sustainability Engineer. He spends a lot of time really researching sustainable products, better ways that we can create products especially with like the strides as a company that we're making towards sustainability. 00:01:13:06 - 00:01:14:20 He gets to work really closely with that and kind of be at the forefront of it with our products. My advice to the next generation of female leaders would really just advocate for yourself. You know, don't be afraid to have a voice at the table. If you really want something be vocal about it, ask how you can get there. I think that, like, the future generation kind of has that on their side, that there's like this whole movement behind it. 00:01:37:01 - 00:01:39:03 So kind of be at the forefront of that. So I haven't always been great at balancing my personal life or my passions and my career, but I think over time I've realized that for me to, like, show up and be my best and be like really like on task and on top of things. Balance is crucial if you're not like maintaining that, then you're not really going to succeed in any of those areas of your life. How can other women support each other in their careers? I think that that kind of says it, like, just support each other. You know, it's a level playing field, and I think every woman has a voice in the room and just kind of inspiring each other, supporting each other, working together, and encouraging each other to, you know, reach those goals and continue to grow and bring your ideas to the table. You know, just being kind of each other's cheerleaders.
