2016 SF Bay Area Shadow Program
As part of its mission, ChIPs seeks to motivate, train and provide opportunities to the next generation of women leaders in technology, law, and policy. In furtherance of this mission, ChIPs is pleased to announce the ChIPs Advocacy Leadership & Innovation Program, or, the ChIPs ALI Program.
Formerly the “ChIPs Shadow Program,” this was piloted in summer 2016 in three regions: Washington D.C., Silicon Valley and Austin, Texas. The program was designed for high school girls and young women interested in exploring careers in law, technology and government.
The program is designed to encourage Advocacy, Leadership and Innovation by providing hands-on experience with visits to organizations such as the Courts, Legislature and the United States Patent and Trademark Office and opportunities to interact one-on-one with senior women and diverse leaders in these fields. Specifically, ChIPs seeks to help develop and inspire the next generation of women leaders and innovators by encouraging them to speak and advocate with confidence, challenge convention, and innovate, while exposing them to the areas of law, technology, and policy.
