​Looking for an IP Inclusive event to go to?  Wanting to get more involved and meet others who care about diversity in IP?  Here’s an up-to-date events listing.

And by the way, these events are open to all IP professionals and, thanks to our generous sponsors, free of charge.  For patent and trade mark attorneys, where the topic is relevant to your professional practice, the event can also count towards your CPD requirement.
