Meet the Willners: These Class of 2006 Sweethearts and Silicon Valley Pros Offer Peek Into Tech Culture

Dave and Charlotte Willner, both members of the Class of 2006, met and fell in love when they were students at Bowdoin. Since graduating, they have had parallel careers in the fast-paced world of Silicon Valley. Having both worked at Facebook, they’re now at Airbnb and Pinterest.

The Willners visited Bowdoin this week, dropping into several classes to discuss a wide range of topics: free speech and ethics on the Internet; safety, privacy, and security on social media; women and diversity in Silicon Valley; and government regulations in the sharing economy. They also spoke about the trajectories of their careers, and the challenges they have faced in their rapidly developing industry. Read the story in Bowdoin News.
