IP Futures is a new IP Inclusive Community for early career stage IP professionals. It’s intended to offer networking and support for those who are not yet fully qualified or less than three years post-qualification, in all IP-related roles including, for example, paralegals and formalities officers, secretaries, patent office examiners, searchers and information scientists, IP managers, IP solicitors and barristers, and patent and trade mark attorneys.
We’re not yet fully up and running, but we have set up an initial survey (see below) and we’d love it if you could take part in that and help us gather data to inform our future work.
Our initial survey looks at diversity levels among the next generation of IP professionals. It’s particularly focused on social mobility and access into IP-related jobs. The survey is totally anonymous and should only take you about twelve minutes to complete – and you can skip any of the questions if you don’t feel comfortable answering them.
