An IP Inclusive Women in IP/CIPA webinar
12.30 – 1.30 pm
The aim of this event is to explore why there is less diversity in the upper echelons and what people in senior positions can do to help redress the balance. Our target audience is people in, or aspiring to, leadership and management roles – and we hope to provide clear, practical guidance for creating inclusive teams and working practices.
Our speakers are high-level IP professionals with a track record of pursuing diversity and inclusion within their own teams. They include:
- Ben Buchanan, Deputy Director, Patents at the UK Intellectual Property Office, involved in leadership and management of IP delivery; keen champion of the IPO’s diversity and inclusion programmes
- Suzanne Oliver, Senior Director, Legal and IP Operations at Arm; Vice-President of the IP Federation
- Anand K Sharma, Managing Partner at Finnegan
And in the chair:
- Lesley Evans, Leadership Consultant and Coach at Collingwood-Evans Consulting; former Chief Executive of Haseltine Lake (now Haseltine Lake Kempner); founder and leader of IP Inclusive’s EDI Charter Group
More details to follow – including for a live viewing in Sheffield, hosted by Franks & Co and organised by our North of England network.
