Each year, the ChIPs Global Summit attracts more than 500 women in senior-level positions at law firms, technology companies and government agencies and who work at the intersection of tech, law and policy.

For our seventh annual Global Summit we will explore NEW FRONTS in the technology, legal and regulatory landscapes.   This year's sessions will cover cutting-edge developments in the law, the shifting regulatory landscape for technology companies, challenges facing general counsel, and diversity and inclusion strategies avaliable. 

The Global Summit will again include opportunities for attendees to connect and engage socially. This includes the return of sponsor hosted “after-parties,” women owned pop-up shops, group fitness activies, inlcuding morning yoga and a 5K fun run around DC monuments, and our new networking lounge.

The 2018 Global Summit will take place on October 18-19 at the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, DC.
