We are a nonprofit organization that advances and connects women in technology, law and policy. We seek to accelerate innovation through diversity of thought, participation and engagement.
Founded in 2005 by seven women chiefs of intellectual property in Silicon Valley, ChIPs has over 3,000 members and sixteen local chapters in the United States and abroad. The ChIPs community comes from the private sector as well as all branches of the government. Our members are engaged at the heart of current events — as active participants in the lawmaking, policymaking, judicial, advocacy and innovation processes. Participation is open to anyone who shares our mission.
