IP Inclusive

IP Inclusive annual meeting & diversity conference
21 January 2020

This year our annual meeting will form part of a full-day conference, with workshops on a range of diversity- and inclusion-related topics and plenty of opportunities to network and share ideas with other IP Inclusive supporters. We hope that for those of you who were planning to come into London specially for the annual meeting, the additional CPD content will make the trip more worthwhile, as well as providing inspiration for our 2020 plans.
