Congratulations to the Boston Chapter Leadership for a successful launch in November! ChIPs Board Director Dorian Daley spoke in a fireside chat to guests from law firms, corporate legal departments, and academia at Analog Devices’ headquarters. WilmerHale and Finnegan sponsored this great event. Guests were encouraged to bring clothing items for Uncommon Threads, a Boston nonprofit that provides clothes and styling to increase the self-worth of women in need.
Chapter Leader Monica Grewal was enthusiastic about the launch. “Boston joins the ChIPs network of regional branches launched across the country in the last two years to connect with more women locally and more regularly,” said Monica. “The leadership committee includes influential women in the Boston area who have been enthused to develop this chapter and are happy to further the work of ChIPs to connect women across industries working in technology, law, policy and intellectual property.”
Monica organized the ChIPs Boston launch event, along with the help of fellow chapter leaders Margaret Seif, Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of Analog Devices; Gauri Dhavan, Chief intellectual Property Counsel of ZOLL Medical Corporation; Ruth Okediji, Professor at Harvard Law School and Co-Director of the Berkman Klein Center; and Anna Berry, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Jounce Therapeutics, Inc.
The Boston chapter will continue to gather in 2019 for events focused on networking, professional development, legal education and more.
We look forward to seeing more from Boston in 2019!
