ChiWIP and Dentons hosted an engaging social event centered on the newest developments at the US Patent and Trademark Office. Attendees networked with women from Chicago's IP, legal and business communities, while enjoying fine wine and cheese pairings. Dr. Christal Sheppard, Director of the USPTO's Midwest Regional Office, addressed the state of the agency in general and her office in particular. She also discussed key USPTO programs, such as its Women in STEM Initiative. Wine and cheese tasting will go on throughout the evening, and a wine expert was on hand to provide pairing recommendations.
