WHO WE ARE
Chicago Women in IP (ChiWIP) is a networking and mentoring group committed to the connection, promotion and success of professional Chicago women in all stages of practice of every facet of IP law.
Through regularly scheduled events, we offer seminars, knowledge sharing, career resources, and leadership opportunities for personal and professional development. ChiWIP provides a forum for women professionals in the field of intellectual property to share their successes and challenges with other women more openly than they might with colleagues at their own firms.
ChiWIP In-House Advisory Committee Member
Mary Schnurr, Associate General Counsel at Ardagh Group, is a name very familiar around ChiWIP, both as an active In-House Advisory Committee Member and as an ardent supporter of women in IP. Mary has spent most of her legal career as in-house counsel. “I like working for a corporation because the work-life balance is better,” Mary said. As to her current professional home, the Ardagh Group, Mary didn’t hesitate before highlighting what a great place it is to work—well-organized and with dedicated people who thrive working independently.
