The Women in IP Community held its third annual meeting, proudly hosted by Gowling WLG, on Thursday 22nd November 2018.
There was a panel discussion followed by a chance to network with others from across the IP professions. The discussion focused on flexible working and career breaks. The speakers at the event were:
Her Honour Judge Melissa Clarke
Anna Fletcher – Gowling WLG
Ben Hoyle – of Counsel, EIP Europe LLP & Hoyle IP Services Ltd
Heather Lane – Partner, Gill Jennings & Every LLP
Vicki McKinney – Senior Patent Attorney, Shell International Limited
Chair: Alexandra Brodie, Gowling WLG
We heard from these panellists about their experiences of flexible working, including the hurdles they had encountered and what others did to help them, and generally how to use flexible working arrangements to help manage your work/life balance in the IP professions.
