The IP & ME Community focuses on ethnic minority IP professionals, although it is open to anyone in the IP professions who shares IP Inclusive’s values and objectives.

IP & ME works to the following mission statement:

  • To celebrate diversity and inclusion in the IP professions.
  • To support ethnic minority IP practitioners at all stages of their careers.
  • To assist and inspire ethnic minorities with the necessary aptitude and skill set to enter the IP professions.
  • To work with stakeholders in the IP professions and the wider legal profession to better understand and address issues around diversity and inclusion, with respect to ethnic minorities.

To help deliver on our mission statement, we aim to stage events which bring people together to discuss a range of issues concerning the IP professions.

The IP & ME Community is run by a small volunteer committee. If you have any questions about us, or would like to be more actively involved, please sign up to our mailing list, email us or contact any of the committee members listed lower down this page. Through the mailing list, we can keep you informed of community news and upcoming events, and more generally about issues and resources relevant to equality, diversity and inclusion in the IP professions. You can also keep up to date by joining our LinkedIn group, or check out our LinkedIn profile page. We would love to hear from you, whether with questions, offers of help or suggestions for future activities.
