Most recently, on March 8, The Maine Take celebrated the achievements, accomplishments, and contributions of women in Maine on International Women’s Day with a line-up of remarkable leaders that included Governor Janet Mills; Thomas College President Laurie Lachance; Dr. Joan Ferrini-Mundy, University of Maine System vice chancellor for research and innovation, and president of the University of Maine and its regional campus, the University of Maine at Machias; and Hannah Pingree, director of the Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future.
