Formed in 2013, Women in Privacy® (WIP) is an international network of more than 2,400 women working as in-house counsel, compliance officers and other professionals in the field of privacy. WIP aims to provide a platform for high-level discussions of data protection and privacy law developments, to facilitate and strengthen networking among women privacy professionals, and to mentor and promote the advancement of women in the field. Our regular meetings held in the U.S. and the EU include guest speakers highly regarded as experts in Privacy and Data Security law, including Julie Brill, Corporate Vice President, Deputy General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer for Global Privacy and Regulatory Affairs, Microsoft; Helen Dixon, Data Protection Commissioner for Ireland; and Ashkan Soltani, former Senior Advisor in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and former Chief Technologist for the Federal Trade Commission.
