Next Gen Summit

ChIPs is pleased to announce the 2017 Next Gen Summit, an interactive forum for the next generation of leaders. Our mission is simple, but critical: to support and promote the advancement, development and retention of women where technology, law and policy converge. We are committed to providing growth opportunities in critical business development, sales, and advocacy skills to rising women leaders. In support of that initiative, the Global Summit includes two invitation-only events: Next Gen and our popular Mock Exercise.


This session is closed to applications.

This half-day program is specifically geared toward ChIPs members in the first fifteen years of their careers in tech, law and policy.
