On February 8, IP professionals gathered together in celebration at ChiWIP's Annual Progressive Dinner at The Dalcy. Attendees enjoyed lively discussions centered around career changes, leadership, pay equity, and more. The evening kicked off with a First Time Attendee Toast welcoming over 50 first time attendees. Many exciting announcements were made throughout the night. Bright Endeavors, a Chicago-based social enterprise focused on helping young women gain professional experience and supporting young moms, was highlighted as our community partner and recipient of ChiWIP’s annual donation. We were also excited to host the recipient of the First Annual Scholarship for the Advancement of Women in Law or STEM Graduate Studies and announce the upcoming 2nd Annual Scholarship opportunity.
Thank you to all the sponsors who made this night possible. Thank you also to the wonderful Student Ambassadors and volunteers who came to help out!
