We have a number of regional networks for our EDI Charter signatories and supporters. They’re a good way to meet like-minded IP professionals in your area, and to exchange ideas and experiences about diversity, inclusion and wellbeing. The networks organise local events – including discussions, seminars and workshops on D&I-related topics; live viewings of IP Inclusive webinars; and purely social occasions.

To find out more about one of the regional networks, or get involved on their committees, please contact:

You can subscribe to updates about their activities and events by signing up to the IP Inclusive mailing list here and selecting the region(s) of interest. (Please note that if you’re already signed up to one of our mailing lists, when you submit the form you will be asked to “update your preferences”.)

You can also see what’s going on in your area by visiting our Events page and selecting “Regional events” in the filter above the calendar. And there’s more about the networks in some of our News and Features posts, for example this one about the North of England.

We’re keen to set up more regional networks and events, so please get in touch if you’d be interested in helping with something near you.
