What will you be doing?
During IP Inclusive Week, we are encouraging everyone in the IP professions to do at least one thing, however small, to improve diversity and inclusivity (D&I).
It could be anything from an in-house coffee-and-cake discussion on your organisation’s D&I policies, to a wider event with others in your region, or something in between. We will keep you updated on ideas for events and activities via our dedicated blog page.
We want to hear from you about what you are planning, so that we can share ideas and celebrate the great things we are sure will be happening. In the month before and during the week itself, we will be tweeting regularly about #ipinclusiveweek and updating this blog. We would like you to do the same: tweet, post news on your website, and send us your photos and reports to post on ours.
We will be organising our own events in and around IP Inclusive Week, some of them through our Women in IP, IP Out and IP&ME support groups. But the important thing is what you do, because IP Inclusive Week is for everyone in the IP professions: not just our supporters and Charter signatories but also the people who have not so far been involved but want to help us create a more diverse and inclusive profession.
