Tech Star: Lisa Mae Brunson, Founder of Wonder Women Tech and More

By Caroline Cox, November 15, 2016

Lisa Mae Brunson is many things. She’s founder of Wonder Women Tech and Hacks for Humanity Hackathon events, CEO of EqualityTV and more, but she called herself a social innovator first. Her Wonder Women Tech conference highlights, celebrates and educates a diverse pool of women from different technology backgrounds, and is focused on providing both multicultural programs and opportunities to underserved demographics such as the deaf, the disabled, seniors and the LGBTQ community. With a background in media, marketing and branding, Brunson says her past experiences have helped her become not only a visionary creative but an innovative leader and fearless networker.

A focus on interaction anchored this year’s conference, held in July at Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in California. Elements like storytelling stations gave attendees the chance to tell their own stories and interact with technology to cast their vote on social causes. Moreover, “we did a cool visual installation mirroring dance with tech,” says Brunson.
