Women in IP coffee dates
Thursday 6 May 2021
The May 2021 Women in IP coffee date was a link-up with IP Ability. It was held at 12 noon on Thursday 6 May 2021, with the local hosts listed below. All UK-based IP professionals were welcome, regardless of gender.
The IP Ability committee proposed the following questions to help shape our discussions this time.
- Please review the following images then consider, what does disability look like?
- Do you think a disabled person experiences their impairment as a constant or do you think it might vary (throughout the day, year, a lifetime)?
- What do you think we (as employers, colleagues and friends) can do to be better allies to disabled people?
We’ll soon be posting the outcomes from these fascinating discussions: keep an eye on our News and Features page.
