BANGOR — The Bangor Daily News will hold its next Dirigo Speaks event “#MeToo in Maine: What’s changed?” 5:30- 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at the Bangor Arts Exchange, 193 Exchange St.
The #MeToo movement raised awareness of sexual harassment in Maine, across the United States and globally. Three Maine workplace leaders come together for a Dirigo Speaks that will reflect on the last year and ask: What’s changed in workplaces in Maine? Has anything changed for women or for men?
The evening’s speakers bring a range of perspectives from Maine businesses: Heather Robinson — SVP and chief human resources officer, Camden National Bank; Stephanie Brock — vice president of sales and general manager, Red Thread; Kerem Durdag — chief operating officer, GWI; Callie Ferguson (moderator) — BDN journalist.
