The City of Technology Love

LaunchCode Celebrates Philly Tech Week With THREE Events!

Philly Tech Week is back again this year, bringing with it in-person and virtual events celebrating technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation in the City of Brotherly Love. LaunchCode has you covered with three unique experiences to make the most of it.

During the Week of May 9th, LaunchCode is hosting THREE free events centering the voices of diverse leaders in tech, human resources, and social services who are changing the tech landscape in Philadelphia. The events honor and celebrate advances in hiring and tech strategy, while also encouraging attendees to take action and continue striving for equitable and inclusive tech workplaces.


The Journey Ahead:

Making Meaningful Change in the Diversity of Philly Tech 

At a time when a record number of people are leaving their jobs and leaders are grappling to fill open roles, companies creating new opportunities for entry are tapping into a huge pool of Americans hungry to learn new skills and a fresh start.

Join LaunchCode and Per Scholas as they convene a panel discussion with industry leaders in tech, human resources, and social services to discuss how organizations are pivoting to adapt to this new landscape. Learn how businesses are shifting paradigms to build inclusive workplaces, reimagine and transform business lines, and create diverse workforces that addresses persistent intergenerational gaps in wealth and opportunity.
