ChIPs Impact Report Features Facts, Figures and Photos

ChIPs Board Chair Katherine Minarik thanked hundreds of ChIPs leaders and volunteers.

Last year was a year to remember, and ChIPs new Impact Report outlines our top moments and milestones from 2022.

Board Chair Katherine Minarik of Coinbase and ChIPs Executive Director Joan Toth open the report by thanking “everyone who advanced our mission in 2022, especially our 5,000 members who helped lift one another and support our common cause.”


“Diversity and inclusion are key to innovation and financial performance: companies with gender-diverse leadership are 21% more likely to outperform their peers, and ethnically diverse companies are 33% more likely to outperform,” according to an international survey cited by the report.

The report says, “We emerged from the pandemic stronger than ever. Our membership increased 43% and our events set new records. Nearly 950 professionals attended ChIPs Week events in San Francisco. And we welcomed five new chapters in Australia and New Zealand, Belgium, the Carolinas, Eastern Canada and San Diego.”

More to come

Looking forward: “In 2023 ChIPs is launching a new online community to connect ChIPsters around the world. We are expanding our ChIPs NextGen event into a new NextGen Initiative. We will offer new content and webinars, Mock Pitch program and General Counsel Boot Camp. And we will launch our ChIPs Innovation Awards.”

The Impact Report has links to hundreds of photos from our ChIPs Global Summit, ChIPs NextGen and ChIPs Hall of Fame events, and features rosters of ChIPs Board, ChIPs committees and leaders from 25 chapters around the world.
