An informal online get-together
with IP & ME and friends
Friday 16 December 2022
To kick-off their re-launched community, IP & ME invited you to the first of a new series of “coffee” dates.
These coffee dates will be informal get-togethers; IP & ME will be organising them at various times and locations, depending on who’s around. Sometimes they’ll have a theme to kick-start the conversations, but there will be plenty of opportunities for a general chat and networking too. The coffee dates are intended to provide a safe space for IP & ME supporters to connect and build career-long relationships.
The first coffee date was an informal Zoom meeting on Friday 16 December at 10 am and involved an informal, round table-style discussion where we chatted about…
1) A bit about ourselves, but more importantly, a lot about yourselves!
2) Why you’ve joined IP & ME and your experiences in IP so far
3) How you hope things will change in our community
Who was it for?
These get-togethers are for IP & ME supporters and would-be supporters. They’re open to people from minority ethnic backgrounds and allies as well. Whatever your role and career level, if you work in the UK’s IP sector we’d love you to join us at one of our future coffee dates. And feel free to invite a friend or colleague to come along with you – perhaps someone who’s not yet involved with IP & ME? They’ll be most welcome!
This event was free. So are all our resources. We think it’s important to keep IP Inclusive on the right side of the paywall.
That said, we do need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoyed the event, please consider contributing to our 2022-23 fundraising campaign. For more information – including about corporate donations – visit our fundraising page.
