IP Ability is the IP Inclusive community for disabled people, carers and allies working within the IP professions. We provide a supportive and informative network focusing on the issues relating to disability and long-term health conditions of all kinds, be they mental or physical, visible or invisible, permanent or temporary, sudden onset or progressive.
IP Ability intends to:
The IP Ability community is run by a small volunteer committee. If you are interested in being part of the committee or taking more of an active role in the community, please email us or join our LinkedIn group. We would love to hear from you, whether with questions, offers of help or suggestions for future activities. Our current committee members are shown further down this page.
To receive updates about our activities and events, you can sign up to the IP Inclusive mailing list here and select IP Ability as one of your communities of interest. (Please note that if you’re already signed up to one of our mailing lists, when you submit the form you will be asked to “update your preferences”.)
We hope soon to publish a collection of useful links and resources to help IP professionals become more disability-confident.
We would love to hear from you with your suggestions, both about resources you already know of and those you’d like to find here. Please also check out IP Inclusive’s main Resources page for other materials relevant to diversity and inclusion.
