EIP Sponsors ChIPs Networking Event

EIP is sponsoring a ChIPs networking event in support of charity Code First: Girls, aimed at helping women enter the tech industry.

On Thursday 28 March ChIPs will be hosting a pub quiz in London, co-organised by ChIPs member Carissa Kendall-Windless of EIP Legal. The event will be a chance for the 300 ChIPs members in London to meet new people and put their minds together to win a prize. Tickets cost £20 and can be purchased here.

ChIPs is a non-profit, founded in 2005 with the purpose of supporting and fostering women in tech-based law. Their name stands for ‘chiefs in intellectual property’, referring to the executive roles that involve responsibility for a company’s IP. Self-described ChIPsters usually have a degree in both a technical field and law and are working to diminish the long-standing gender gap in IP law.

By joining CHiPs, members gain access to the wide range of events hosted every year, which focus on networking, legal education, community outreach and professional development. If you’re interested in joining, you can visit their website to learn more.
