Event Description:
We continue our successful women’s leadership series with Emily Cain, Executive Director of Emily's List.

Emily Cain has a decade of experience as a state legislator and public policy leader, two election cycles as one of the country’s top ranked Democratic congressional candidates, more than a decade of work in higher education and recent leadership as Chief Strategy Officer for HistoryIT, a private sector tech company. 

Emily, who was first elected to office at age 24, made her mark in Maine politics serving in both the House and Senate over five terms in the state legislature, leading the Appropriations Committee as Chair and serving as the youngest House Minority Leader in state history. In 2012, against all odds, Emily led House Democrats back into the majority by recruiting top candidates, electing more women, and winning tough seats in Maine’s challenging rural areas. As a leader in the legislature Emily was known as a tough negotiator, deal closer, and champion for women, equality, domestic violence prevention, and economic development. In 2014 and 2016 Emily ran for U.S. Congress in two of the most competitive house races in the country. 

The daughter of a shoe salesman and a sign language interpreter, Emily is the oldest of three sisters and learned at a very young age the value of hard work, family, and education. Emily is married to Danny Williams, Executive Director of the Collins Center for the Arts at the University of Maine, and has lived in Maine most of her life. She was born in Kentucky, spent her childhood years in Illinois and New Jersey, and is a graduate of the University of Maine and Harvard University. 


Join us and hear what motivates and energizes Emily, what she would each tell her “twenty-something” self and what it’s like to live her dreams. Our host, Deb Neuman, will help us all lean in and learn!
