IP Out, our community for LGBT+ IP professionals and their allies, held a fantastic discussion event on 23 January 2020. Here’s a report from one of their committee members, Darren Smyth, and some photos courtesy of the event hosts EIP.
The first IP Out event of 2020 was the second event, following the talk from Lord Chris Smith in 2018, in which role models in the IP community shared their experiences. This time, we trialled a “conversation” format rather than the more conventional monologue.
Both David and Stuart kindly stayed for the informal drinks and networking where the discussions continued.
