This breakfast event was hosted simultaneously by a number of IP firms at venues in London, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester, Bath and Cambridge.
The “How to be a Workplace Ally” webinar was led by:
- Andrea Brewster, co-founding former partner of Greaves Brewster, leader of the IP Inclusive taskforce and CIPA Immediate Past President; along with
- Lesley Evans, CEO of Haseltine Lake and Team Leader of the EDI Charter Group for IP Inclusive.
The programme for the event was as follows:
09.40-10.00am Coffee and networking
Company commitment to gender diversity is at an all-time high, but women are still often falling behind in the workplace. Using research and insight recently published by LeanIn.org, along with their own wealth of experience, Andrea and Lesley discussed what we can all do to challenge the stereotypes and unconscious biasses that can hold women back. Whilst focusing on supporting your female colleagues, the message resonated more widely: together we can work to ensure that we are fostering fair and inclusive working environments.
With thanks to our generous host venues: Boult Wade Tennant, Carpmaels and Ransford, EIP, Haseltine Lake, Burness Paull, Mewburn Ellis, Norton Rose Fulbright, and Turnbull Lynch IP (TLIP).
