Women in IP coffee dates
Tuesday 29 June 2021
8.30 am


Please join us for our next Women in IP coffee dates: 45 minutes to an hour of informal chat and networking with friends from around the country. As usual, all UK-based IP professionals are welcome, regardless of gender.


Discussion theme

This month’s discussion theme is “New working models”. We’ll be exploring the following questions:

  1. What working models do you think we will start to see more of in the “new normal”? Do you think they will be used to the same extent by all genders?
  2. Do you think working away from the office more will affect the ability to get support/sponsorship, or otherwise be a negative?
  3. What strategies should we use to overcome/minimise any negatives?

On the same theme, you might be interested in IP Inclusive’s recently-published “Ten tips for post-lockdown inclusivity”.

This event is free. So are all our resources. We think it’s important to keep IP Inclusive the right side of the paywall.

That said, we do need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoy the event please consider contributing to our 2021-22 fundraising campaign. For individual ad hoc donations, our crowdfunding page is here. Or for more information – including for corporate sponsors – visit our general fundraising page here.
