Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast, the biggest convening of local tech and startup leaders in the city, returns for its eighth year on April 27.

While the focus is solidly on, yes, technology, there’s plenty for social impact leaders to get in on, including Generocity’s own Tech in the Commons bootcamp series for nonprofit professionals and an accessibility hackathon benefitting adults with disabilities.

But we’re especially excited about the newest offering for leaders of all stripes: Introduced by Technical.ly, a day-long conference that will incorporate programming, demos, networking and personalized connections around the themes GROW, MESSAGE and IMPACT.

  • GROW will cover all things biz and science — lessons in growing smarter companies and being a better founder, and trends in digital health, health IT and other innovative practices.
  • MESSAGE is all about media and creative — how to access customers via digital tools and new approaches, and inspiration by design and art principles in the digital form.
  • IMPACT will tackle civic and access — making your city more innovative and equitable, and making your organization and industry more diverse and inclusive.

The IMPACT room is being curated by Generocity, which means each of the speakers will have some tie to social impact. Some panel topics to expect:

(Psst, this editor is moderating a panel called “Company Responsibility: #MeToo, BLM & Polarization.”)

It’s all happening Thursday, May 3, at the newly renamed Science History Institute. We hope to introduce ourselves to you there.
