What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

In Honor of Women’s History Month, we’d like to introduce you to some of the amazing female leadership here at OCM! Watch the full interviews here.

OCM CEO Dawn Robertson

Q&A with CEO, Dawn Robertson.

What has been your biggest achievement in your career?

“My biggest achievement has been to take chances - I grew up in a very traditional department store at Macy’s, and I moved my entire family to Australia. I took on running the largest department store there as a young woman with young children, and it was a huge win, but it was scary, and it was a chance, and it could’ve failed. So probably that would be the thing that I’m most proud of, but also the thing I learn the most from. So taking chances is really, really critical.”

You are one busy lady! How do you maintain work-life balance?

“When I grew up, there were not a lot of women in retail at the senior level. My oldest daughter would tell you that she grew up underneath my conference room table on Saturday’s. Now I don’t think that’s quite true - but she would say that! I learned that you have to be involved with your children wherever you can. My children grew up knowing that I had another life, a life that I enjoyed and loved, and that it made me happy. That balance really worked, because they saw me have to balance. Some days, you’re a great mother. Some days, you’re a great leader. Some days, you’re a great partner. But most days, you’re not all 3 - give yourself a break!”

OCM CMO Marcelle Parrish

Q&A With Marcelle Parrish, CMO

Who are some of your female role models?

“My mother is amazing. I look to her for guidance, she has been an amazing role model for me. When I look out more globally, during my time at eBay in Silicon Valley right before her book Lean In came out, Sheryl Sandberg was phenomenal. What she’s done has really changed the conversation for women. I admire her greatly.

Michelle Obama I think is fantastic, she has balanced civic duty with parenthood and being an incredible mom. Not just as a wife, but as a role model for women and being her own person.

Also, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. RBG’s efforts toward having women in the room. I do think it’s so important that women be given an equal voice and that we have that conversation. I see that now more than ever, that that’s happening and I’m super encouraged by that.”

As the mother of a college freshman, what advice would you give to the incoming class of students and their parents?

“Do not stress - you will be fine! After going through the application process, and the angst of worrying about where to go, wherever you end up will be the best place for you. Secondly, really encouraging you to be independent. As a mother, I called my son everyday for the first week. But it is important to help them develop their independence and see them grow.”

Making sure that they feel comfortable in their dorm room is important. Finding the right style for what they feel comfortable with, but also making it cozy and welcoming. This is their first time away from home, where they have a new home.”

OCM CCO Lil Abrogast

Q&A With Lil Abrogast, CCO

What does being a female leader at OCM mean to you?

“Being a female leader anywhere is very different today than it was when I first started out. I often talk to my daughter who is in her late 20s about how lucky she is, because my generation and a couple of the generations before me had a much different experience. Now women are taken seriously in the workplace and especially and in this company.  I feel very supported as a female leader.

I honestly haven't given my gender much thought in the workplace for a  very long time, because it’s not an issue - particularly not an issue at OCM. OCM is a very female driven, female supported environment.”

What is one piece of advice you would give to the next generation of female college students?

“Dare to dream. Dare to shoot for the moon and be satisfied with the stars. There really is nothing you cannot do, if you just choose to do it. I really believe that, that’s the way I live my life personally and the way I’ve lived my life professionally. The young women coming up now - spread those wings and fly! There is really nothing that can hold you back.”

OCM was founded on the principles of supporting students and their campuses from move-in day to graduation. For more information about OCM, please visit www.ocm.com.
