An IP Inclusive/CIPA webinar
12.30 – 1.30 pm
In this free webinar, kindly hosted for us by CIPA, we’ll be exploring how to be more inclusive for disabled people in the IP professions. Our speakers include Sally Ward from PurpleSpace and Jane Burton from the Law Society’s Lawyers with Disabilities Division. Together they will discuss the value to be gained by making disabled people and their carers more welcome in our workplaces, the “reasonable adjustments” that can help them fulfil their potential, and the support that both employers and colleagues can provide.
We will also be asking: What more can IP Inclusive do to support disabled people and their carers? And how can we help our Charter signatories to become more disability confident employers?
Ultimately, we hope, this event and our 9 September webinar on the autism spectrum will herald a new networking and support community for IP professionals with both physical and mental disabilities, as well as their allies. Both webinars are aimed at creating more disability-confident workplaces in the IP sector; they are open to all IP professionals, whatever their role or their level of seniority, and to those who support them for instance in managerial or HR functions.
