South by Southwest Interactive is less than a month away so it’s time to prepare.

This week, there are several events that will help you do just that. Make plans to attend the PR Over Coffee Event at Galvanize on Wednesday evening featuring Silicon Hills News and other local media outlets discussing how to get noticed at SXSW. If your company doesn’t have money to rent a Ferris Wheel, this is a good meetup to go to find out affordable ways to get in the headlines.

And SXSW is also holding a couple of community meetups this week. The first is the LGBTQ SXSW meetup Tuesday night at Dropbox offices. And an Austin community meetup at Google Fiber on Thursday.

This week is also Tech Diversity Week in Austin with events throughout the week on a variety of topics including leadership, inclusion, recruiting a diverse workforce, cultivating a culture of diversity. It also includes the National CIO Symposium at Silicon Labs and the Omni Hotel downtown on Wednesday.
