The London Chapter of ChIPs (@ChIPsNetwork) have organised an event during IP Inclusive Week and have kindly invited IP Inclusive supporters to join them there. The event, taking place on Wednesday 14 November 14 from 6 to 9.30 pm, is being hosted by IP Inclusive Charter signatory Simmons & Simmons (@SimmonsLLP).”Take Your Seat at the Bench” is an evening with women judges who hear IP and technology disputes in the UK. Her Honour Judge Melissa Clarke, District Judge Janet Lambert, Kelyn Bacon QC and more, will take us through their journeys in joining the bench, the barriers and opportunities they faced and what we can all do to promote a career in the judiciary for the next generations of women (and men). The discussions will also shed light on some of the diversity initiatives already offered by the UK judiciary and programmes that the ChIPs London leadership are working on launching in 2019.
