IP Out is the IP Inclusive Community for LGBT+ people and their allies working in the IP professions. We provide support and networking opportunities, and typically aim to organise around four events each year. The events, which are open for all to attend, are a mixture of talks and panel discussions as well as more informal social events.

To be kept informed of community news and upcoming events, we highly recommend you sign up to the IP Out mailing list. We promise not to spam you, and being on the mailing list will allow you to receive updates about IP Out activities and the support we need to continue them, and also about issues and resources relevant to equality, diversity and inclusion in the IP professions. It’s a great way of staying involved and ensuring you don’t miss out on important news and events. You can also keep up to date by joining our LinkedIn group.

The IP Out Community is run by a small volunteer committee. If you would be interested in being part of the committee or taking more of an active role in the community, please email us. We would love to hear from you, whether with questions, offers of help or suggestions for future activities. You can find the details of our current committee members towards the bottom of this page.

IP Out stands against racial injustice

IP Out stands with our friends and colleagues in IP & ME and all victims of racism, be it individual or systemic. The events of the past few days and weeks have been a distressing reminder of all the work that remains to be done to make this country, and others, fair and equal. Although we may never understand another’s situation fully, we can help to shoulder their burden and progress their work as allies. We are with you.
