CONNECTING WOMEN IN IP

“Our goal in forming this group is to bring together all women who work in the IP field in Chicago to help them enhance their practices and skill sets, and to provide a forum for the many successful women IP lawyers in the city to give back to their colleagues and to the community.”

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.

Francesca Cardillo

ChiWIP Secretary & Committee Co-Chair

Francesca Cardillo's energy and ability to connect with those around her enliven the ChiWIP community and her practice at K&L Gates LLP.  For ChiWIP, she serves as Secretary on the Board of Directors and Co-Chair of the Mentoring Circles Committee. At KLG, where she is an Associate in the firm's Technology Transactions practice group, Francesca has been at the forefront of data protection compliance as the effective date for the California Consumer Privacy Act nears.

“I think this could be a nice addition to the Chicago IP community and encourage the women to work better with one another from a mentoring and business development standpoint. It was nice to see many in-house counsel in attendance”
