It's a fact: women who attend business conferences for further, faster.

According to a study in the Harvard Business Review, women who attended a women's business conference were twice as likely to be promoted — and three times as likely to get a raise.* It's all about connection. According to the study, 71% of attendees said they felt 'more connected to others" after the event — 78% said they felt more optimistic about the future." And when you're feeling connected and confident, there are no limits to what you can do.

I love the ChIPs Next Summit because it’s about career advancement and welcoming folks into the ChIPs community. There are so many opportunities earlier in your career to make an impression and find the next big opportunity, and I found those because of peers, mentors and sponsors from ChIPs.
