Six stories to inspire you on International Women’s Day

How do you "Choose to Challenge?"

March 8 is International Women's Day, a day we celebrate the achievements of women of the past, present and aim to inspire those in the future. This year's theme, Choose to Challenge, emphasizes the importance of striving for better and being open to change.

At Colortech, we are proud to have a diverse group of women on our team that plays a role in every aspect of our business. Whether through creative problem solving or providing guidance to others, the women of Colortech aim to inspire each other to learn something new and identify ways to transform the plastics industry. Our team is always eager to invest in our communities and support organizations that empower young women through education, the arts, and many other initiatives.

We recently asked a few of the amazing women at Colortech to share their stories. We encourage everyone to take a moment to read their inspiring messages as they reflect on their careers and the advice they have for young women entering the workforce.

Alisha Renner, Organization Change Specialist, says she has learned something far more valuable than one's title: success. Renner says her transition from Human Resources to I.T. has taught her to step out of her comfort zone and embrace my curiosity to learn more.
Marissa Hann-Banks, Colortech Senior Sales Representative, describes how her past experience in the industry has taught her to be her authentic self. She also acknowledges Colortech's unique company culture and finding a company that supports her professional growth.

Colortech Quality Assurance Technician, Cindy Sharpe quickly fell in love with the fast-paced environment and opportunities when her manufacturing career started 28 years ago. I wants to encourage women entering the workforce to work hard and never give up.
