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.

Lizzy Diaz-Ortiz

ChiWIP Member

Lizzy Diaz-Ortiz’ exceptional ability for creative problem-solving serves her well both inside and outside the workplace. Lizzy’s (pronounced LEE-see) upbringing is how she developed this unique skill. Lizzy grew up in a military family and has lived all around the world. “My family is Puerto Rican. My parents left the Island for better opportunities. Both joined the military and ended up career military,” she reflects. “I spent my formative years in Germany,” Lizzy says, “and Chicago-Kent College of Law was where I earned my IP certificate because I had a strong interest in the entertainment industry, creative work, and trademarks.” After law school, Lizzy worked in several financial institutions focusing on regulatory compliance but remained involved in the IP community.
