On September 30, 2015, The Civic Innovation Project joined over 1,200 civic innovators for the National Code for America Annual Summit in California for a session organized by Microsoft focused on Data Visualization.
On International Women's Day, Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced the winners of the EXTRAordinary Women Award, led by the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement. The campaign highlights women that do extraordinary work within the Boston community and Lourdes German, Founder & Director of the Civic Innovation Project, was selected as an honoree.
The Civic Innovation Project teamed up with the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy at Boston College to host “Governing in a Digital Age” - a joint program focused on issues related to innovation in governance around public records and open data.
Diversity and inclusion are critical underpinnings to the evolving culture at Microsoft and powerful bridges to the marketplace. In the spirit of International Women’s Day, Microsoft celebrated Lourdes German, and other women in the community who are carrying out the mission of civic engagement, leadership and empowering other women in the "Voices of Change" series.
