Chicago Women in IP (ChiWIP), a networking and mentoring group for women throughout the Chicagoland area who work in all facets of intellectual property, will be hosting an event to help support Brownie troops throughout Chicagoland attain both their Girl Scout Inventor Badge along with the IP Patch. ChiWIP founding member, Molly Keelan, is co-chairing the Girl Scout IP Patch Event.

In corroboration with the USPTO and Intellectual Property Owners Association, the IP Patch for Girl Scouts was designed to increase awareness of creation and protection of intellectual property across disciplines and particularly as it relates to the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), for girls of all ages.
