Pictured here is MRC’s Program Manager, George Maris speaking to Roger Williams University students at their recent career fair about how pursuing a career at MRC provides the opportunity to work with some of the Navy’s most advanced systems and cutting-edge technology.
He communicated how “Working at MRC will not only allow an individual to be instrumental in helping to build upon our nation’s warfighting capabilities, but to also be part of an organization that cares not only for the products and services it provides, but also for the employees who are the foundation for MRC’s success. As MRC’s former Board Chair Andra McLaughlin Kelly stated, her father, Charles McLaughlin, “brought together some of the top experts in their respective fields to form a company built as much on the strength of its employees as it was on the vision of its founder. His philosophy was that if he created the right environment, the customers would be well served, the employees would flourish, and the company would prosper”.
George made sure to leave the students with a little piece of wisdom from Brené Brown, who is best known for her TEDx talk “The Power of Vulnerability.” Recorded at an event in Houston, TX in 2010. This talk is one of the five most popular in TED history, with more than 60 million views.
“If you’re not willing to fail, you can’t innovate. If you’re not willing to build a vulnerable culture, you can’t create.” – Brené Brown
