Blackstone to participate in Women Who Empower Our World event

Amy Blackstone will be part of the Women Who Empower Our World event March 1 at Northeastern University in Boston.

The University of Maine sociology professor will be a member of a panel that will discuss “How Policy Impacts Women’s Careers and What Still Needs to Change.” For two decades, Blackstone has examined multiple facets of workplace sexual harassment, including repercussions that range from depression to derailed careers.

At the daylong symposium, attendees will examine the state of women’s advancement in leadership, entrepreneurship and policy. They will share research that gauges women’s career equality and growth in these domains and explore avenues for future research, practical implications and policy.
