We’ve been consulting with our stakeholders about the development of IP Inclusive. In the final quarter of 2020 we ran a survey seeking the views of our Charter signatories and also of individual IP professionals. We’ve now published a report of the results, together with our follow-up proposals, which you can read here.
The survey questions are here for the Charter signatories’ version and here for the individuals’ one. And there’s more information about the context to this survey – in particular our proposal to incorporate IP Inclusive as a Community Interest Company, on our dedicated “To Diversity and Beyond” page.
Based on the 2020 survey results, we now hope to create some more detailed plans for IP Inclusive’s future structure, activities and funding. Those plans will be open to further consultation, including at our 2021 annual meeting on 23 March.
Although the survey is now closed, we would still welcome your views about IP Inclusive’s value to the IP professions and how you would like to see it evolve. Whether as an individual IP professional or a representative of an IP sector organisation, and whether or not you’re involved in our EDI Charter scheme, feel free to send your input to [email protected] at any time.
Your feedback will be key to the decisions we take.
