“Hail To Our Chiefs”

Celebrating Our Chiefs and Introducing the Indiana ChIPs Chapter

We are thrilled to officially announce that “Women in IP” have joined forces with “ChIPs,” a nationwide organization dedicated to advancing women at the confluence of law, technology, and regulatory policy. With this founding of the Indianapolis ChIPs Chapter, we have the opportunity to make more meaningful connections here in Indiana, as well as to tap into a nationwide organization that shares our commitment to women’s advancement in intellectual property careers.

As the nationwide organization ChIPs launches a local chapter, Barnes & Thornburg is pleased to sponsor its kick-off event, a lively panel discussion among several accomplished professionals, titled “Chiefs in Intellectual Property.” Join us for cocktails and networking opportunities with other local women whose careers and interests involve the intersection of technology, law and policy.

Barnes & Thrornburg's Indianapolis Office
11 South Meridian Street,

  • 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM – Panel Discussion

Our engaging topics of discussion will include mentoring, strategies for leadership, and effective collaboration between in-house and outside counsel. The panel will be moderated by Barnes & Thornburg partner, Deborah Pollack-Milgate.
