The ChIPs Global Summit, our signature event, draws more than 500 women who hold senior-level positions and work in technology, policy, private practice, corporations, government, nonprofits, academia and beyond. Each year, at least half of our attendees come from technology companies and all branches of government, with the remainder from law firms.
Programming includes cutting-edge topics at the intersection of technology, law and policy, as well as insightful discussions about diversity & inclusion, career development and leadership skills. Past panel topics have included artificial intelligence, technology and politics, fintech, cybersecurity and using technology for social change.
Attendees hear from government officials, senior leaders, entrepreneurs and disrupters. Past headline speakers have included former Acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates, NPR’s Nina Totenberg, Fortune’s Pattie Sellers, elected officials and members of the judiciary, including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a ChIPs Hall of Fame inductee.
The Summit also provides attendees an opportunity to engage socially. This includes festive “after-parties,” an opportunity to shop a carefully curated selection of women-owned pop-up shops, group fitness activities, such as yoga and a 5k fun run, and networking lounges.
