#ILookLikeAnEngineerGR

Thursday, September 10, 2015
Mlive recently published an article in response to the #ILookLikeAnEngineer viral hashtag and added their own twist by including “GR” at the end. The #ILookLikeAnEngineerGR inspired female tech workers in Grand Rapids and surrounding areas to get involved and share photos of themselves. We think it’s great to see so many dedicated women participate and share photos. We sent 4 photos to Mlive that they included in their article.

Carrie Borchers is our Director of Sales

The ITR women in the article are Carrie Borchers, Molly Reid, Susan Ratzsch and Lori Brandt. These ladies have been in the technology industry for many years and they all take pride in what they do. We’re all part of the same unique community and it’s inspiring to see women from all different tech companies, come together to represent the Grand Rapids tech industry as a whole.

Lori Brandt is our Help Desk Manager

The article did a great job highlighting a wide variety of jobs, all in the technology field. The hashtag and recent positive media can be a game changer for some women and girls thinking about going to school for an IT or technology degree. It shows that contrary to the beliefs of some, lots of women are successful in the IT world and there’s possibility for anyone.

Molly Reid is a Senior Account Executive

IT Resource has always maintained a diverse team with women representing nearly 40% of our workforce. We have women holding positions in engineering, leadership, management and sales. We think it’s important to keep the diversity in the workplace and we’ve succeeded at working cohesively for the last 15 years. If you’re in the tech industry, send us your photo and will put it on our social media to keep the conversation going!

Susan Ratzsch is our Project Manager
