On 15 November 2018, IP & ME celebrated IP Inclusive Week with a meal out and a chance to reflect on our successes so far.
As we ended IP Inclusive Week, we said a *huge* thank you to our supporters:
What a first year – from our launch at CIPA Congress 2017, to a further invitation to Congress 2018 to host our amazing speaker, Daniel Alexander QC. We also had tremendous support from CITMA celebrating Black History Month at their 2018 Conference with the incredible James St. Ville as speaker. Of course, there was also our inaugural event earlier this year to celebrate Chinese New Year, attended by folks across *several* professions/organisations as well as vital support from our wonderful sister organisations, IP Inclusive, IP Out, Women in IP and InterLaw Diversity Forum.
We’re still the new kid on the block and didn’t have the bandwidth to put on an event/seminar in IP Inclusive Week (sorry!), but we used the excuse to get together for a vibrant Turkish meal/drinks in London – we set the world to rights; exchanged similar experiences/views; leveraged our differences to stretch our minds and most importantly, shared a good laugh or two!!!! Not bad progress for just one evening, huh?
