IP Inclusive is an initiative which brings people together from across the IP sector in pursuit of a common goal: to promote and improve equality, diversity and inclusion within our community. It was created by volunteers, for volunteers. Pretty much everything we do is powered by the generosity and commitment of IP professionals and the organisations they work in.

We welcome IP professionals of all types, at all levels of seniority, from all kinds of working environments and in all parts of the UK. And we define “IP professional” broadly, as anyone who works in or with intellectual property.  That includes, for example, patent attorneys; trade mark attorneys; barristers and solicitors working in IP; staff within IP registering offices; patent and IP managers; IP administrators, secretaries and paralegals; IP licensing executives; information scientists, searchers, translators and any other professionals (including HR and management professionals) working in IP or with other IP professionals; those who provide representative, support or advisory services to IP professionals; and regulators of IP professionals.

Below you can meet some of the people who are leading our key activities at the moment, including our networking and support communities. By next week, you could be one of them too…
