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.

Anthoula Pomrening

ChiWIP In-House Advisory Committee Member

Anthoula Pomrening's career showcases the values that are important to her: helping those around her, giving back to her communities, and building a strong network.

 

Anthoula currently serves as Intellectual Property Counsel at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab ("SRAlab"), whose mission—to provide the best patient outcomes through high quality patient care, translational research, scientific research and education—is one she believes in and is excited to support through her role. Prior to that, she was a partner at McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP (“MBHB”).

“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”
