BDN publishes grad student’s op-ed on women leaders

Allyson Eslin, who is pursuing a dual master’s in economics and global policy at the University of Maine, wrote an opinion piece for the Bangor Daily News titled, “When women lead, everyone prospers.” In her piece, Eslin cited Maine NEW Leadership, a weeklong, intensive leadership program offered in June at the University of Maine for 28 college students from every political background. Maine NEW Leadership is co-directed by Mary Cathcart, who served four terms as state senator and three terms in the Maine House of Representatives. Cathcart and Amy Blackstone, a UMaine professor of sociology, both contributed to the column.
