With this wintry weather, our minds are already on May.

OK, there’s one other reason: We’re already hard at work planning Philly Tech Week 2019 presented by Comcast over here at Technically Media.

The parent company of Generocity and Technical.ly is hosting its annual prep sesh, Help Plan Philly Tech Week, on Dec. 5 for all community partners interested in shaping the nine-day event series, scheduled this year for May 3 through 11.

And guess what? We want you to be there, helping us help you plan our biggest endeavor of the year.

Have an idea for a panel? Want to see more representation of a specific profession or demographic? Thinking you mayyyybe want to get involved, but need a partner to flesh out your early ideas? Come, meet people, pitch the room and plant the seed of something cool.

Yes, most PTW events are (obviously) tech-heavy, but as our Tech in the Commons series seeks to prove, technology is a part of almost every profession and sector these days. For instance, the 2018 week included social impact-y events such as an accessibility hackathon, an open data workshop and a tech summit for women of color.

And the inaugural Introduced, the Technically Media-produced, one-day conference encapsulating each of Technical.ly’s reporting focus areas, included a civic- and access-themed Impact track led by Generocity because of the mission overlap of our own reporting.

I personally loved leading a few panels, such as the one on company responsibility in the age of #MeToo, Black Lives Matter and polarization, and interviewing La Colombe cofounder Todd Carmichael about his business ethos and professional path.

More details of Generocity’s involvement in the series will pop up over the next few month, but for now, know that we’ll have a hand in shaping programming throughout the week, plus informing the speaker choices for this year’s Introduced. (Psst, look out for an announcement about the conference’s return early next week.)

Here’s what you need to know about the planning event:

  • When — Wednesday, Dec. 5, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
  • WhereWeWork, 1900 Market St.
  • Who — You, your colleagues, your pals
  • How much — Free!
