We are excited to announce our next nationwide Women in IP event, which will be taking place on Thursday 23rd March 2017, from 08:30.

The breakfast event is being hosted by a number of IP firms at venues in London, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester, Bath and Cambridge. Join us for a coffee and a chance to meet other IP professionals before watching our webinar on gender inclusivity.  The event is open to all, not just women. If you work in IP or the IP-related professions (e.g. attorneys, paralegals, legal secretaries, technology transfer specialists, in-house IP teams, trainee IP attorneys, solicitors, barristers, technical translators, IP journalists, etc.), please join us!

Company commitment to gender diversity is at an all-time high, but women are still often falling behind in the workplace.  Using research and insight recently published by, along with their own wealth of experience, Andrea and Lesley will discuss what we can all do to challenge the stereotypes and unconscious bias that can hold women back.  Whilst focusing on supporting your female colleagues, the message will resonate more widely: together we can work to ensure that we are fostering fair and inclusive working environments.
