Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast is organized by Generocity's parent company, Technically Media.
Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast always has a helluva lot of sweet impact events on deck, and the most celebratory of them is the Rad Awards.

Digital content strategist Leah Kauffman’s annual event spotlights some of the most accomplished and, yes, rad women in Philly, with several categories dedicated to the social impact community.

Here are a few of this year’s winners:

  • Activist of the Year — Sara Lomax-Reese, president of 900AM-WURD

And the coveted title of Rad Girl of the Year went to Sharron Cooks, chair of the Mayor’s Commission on LGBT Affairs
