The fifth annual ChIPs Women in Technology, Law and Policy Global Summit took place September 15-16th, 2016 at the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, DC. This year’s summit brought together over 500 women from all over the country to share experiences and ideas, network, and work together to further the advancement of women in IP, technology and policy.
On Wednesday, September 14, ChIPs hosted the inaugural Next Gen Summit at WilmerHale and Sidley Austin LLP in Washington, DC for 230 ambitious young professionals. Building off of the continual success of ChIPs’ widely popular pre-Summit mock exercises, the organization expanded their programming to individuals in the first fifteen years of their careers. The day began with mock exercises and included a full afternoon of events tailored to the next generation of women leaders.
