  • Lisa Williams is the founder of and runs Life and Code, a blog aimed at learning to program for journalists and other busy people. She has run numerous media startups and is a fellow at the MIT Media Lab's Center for Future Civic Media.

The panel will be moderated by Bobbie Carlton, co-founder of Mass Innovation Nights.


About The Strength & Courage Series

A series of dialogues in which local business owners, changemakers, and experts in their fields share professional challenges, lessons learned, and stories of when they've had to exercise strength or courage during their careers. For panelists, these dialogues are a chance to share what they know and are passionate about with others. For all Wonder Women of Boston, panelists and participants alike, these events are an opportunity to come together, support one another around professional challenges, and celebrate successes.

These two hour events typically begin with a panel and then open up to a larger Q&A discussion. Light snacks and beverages will be served.
