Donate Professional Clothing at ChIPs Event to Help Women in Need

For women in need, obtaining professional interview clothing can present a real challenge. Dress for Success helps women in our community prepare for the job hunt. When you attend the ChIPs Minneapolis Chapter holiday event, you’ll have the opportunity to donate clothing to Dress for Success. The December 18 event takes place at the News Room in downtown Minneapolis. Drinks and appetizers will be served, and you’ll hear two local legal professionals speak about attire for the workplace. ChIPs is a nonprofit organization connecting women in technology, law and policy.

Dress for Success provides not only clothing, but also job training and retention programs. Schwegman law clerk Sheila Niaz explains, “I want to support women with needs that aren’t always thought about, while also meeting women who have similar aspirations. Sometimes it’s tempting to take things for granted. This is an excellent opportunity for us to recognize our blessings and help other women pursue their ambitions.”

A local judge and an attorney will present at the event: 3M in-house counsel Melissa Buss will speak about dressing for work as an attorney, and Judge Hildy Bowbeer will discuss courtroom attire.

This gathering is a chance to contribute suits, dresses and separates to a great cause. Bring your professional clothing in ready-to-wear condition to the ChIPs Minneapolis Chapter holiday event – it can help another woman feel confident as she pursues a new step in life. Guidelines for donation are available on the Dress for Success website.

ChIPs has more than 3,000 total members. Membership is open to professionals and students who support ChIPs’ mission. Short for “Chiefs of intellectual property,” ChIPs encourages innovation through diverse thought, participation and engagement. Its local chapters span from Silicon Valley to Chicago, New York and London.

To attend the Minneapolis holiday event, register online. Both ChIPs members and non-members are welcome. There is no cost to join ChIPs.
