Diversity Spotlight

Candice Rogers, Director, Planning & Operations, Finance

Q:

What woman has positively impacted/inspired you in your career, and what’s one lesson she taught you?

A:

I owe my career to my mom. She instilled confidence in me at a young age to be anything that I wanted to be. When she was young there weren’t many opportunities for women. She really pushed me to go to college & obtain a successful career.

Q:

Describe one or more characteristics about yourself that you believe led to your success.

A:

I can be a bit of a workaholic at times. My non Finance friends don’t understand it, but I love to analyze numbers & work in Excel. I also really love to have fun but a good day of hard work gives me a ton of satisfaction.

Q:

What would you tell young women who are just starting to work? What would you like them to know?

A:
Have confidence in yourself. If you work hard & believe in yourself you can make it happen. There have been a couple of key moments in my career where I really went for it & pushed for a position that I knew I would be good at. Without confidence in myself I would not have done that & I would not be where I am now.

Q:

What do you like to do outside of work?

A:

Spend time with my friends & family. I really enjoy playing cards & board games with my family, especially during COVID! I can’t wait to see live music again & get together with friends. My boyfriend Chris & I enjoy walking our dog Peanut & riding our bikes. And of course I love to travel. My favorite vacation will always involve a beach but I also enjoy visiting new places & trying new things. I’m very blessed to have great family & friends, most of which I have met at RCI throughout my 23 years with the company
