This year, Generocity is playing a bigger role in Philly Tech Week. Help us plan PTW19November 15, 2018 Category: Event, Featured, Purpose, Short
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.
