We’ve won another award! IP Inclusive are now the proud owners of the Bristol Law Society’s 2021 Diversity, Inclusion and Wellbeing Award.

Bristol Law Society 2021 award winner's logoThe award was presented at a gala dinner on 14 October 2021, organised to mark the Society’s 250th anniversary. There to collect it – and to share in the celebrations afterwards – were our Lead Executive Officer Andrea Brewster OBE and several representatives from our South West Network: founder and committee co-lead Megan Jefferies from Thrings; Jonny Lerwill from Airbus, also a member of the IP Out committee; Andrew Mears from Mewburn Ellis; Jim Pearson from Abel + Imray; and Sarah Phillips, also from Abel + Imray and co-founder of our IP Non-traditional Family Network.

Our thanks to Megan for nominating IP Inclusive, not to mention her work in leading the South West Network. And although they couldn’t be with us on awards night, we would also like to thank the other members of the network committee: co-lead Fiona McBride from Withers & Rogers; Sue Antoine and Caroline Day from Haseltine Lake Kempner; and George Karkera from Withers & Rogers. They do great work to widen access to, and engagement with, IP Inclusive.
