Below you will find some resources to help you promote equality, diversity and inclusion in the IP professions, in particular in your own workplace. We also have dedicated pages on mental health and wellbeing, diversity data for the IP sector, our Careers in Ideas outreach campaign and the “Steps to Inclusion” D&I review for IP Inclusive Charter signatories. We hope soon to launch a network directory for BAME IP practitioners.
We hope that you find these resources useful. We are always open to suggestions about what else you would like to find here; please contact us with your ideas and feedback.
Please note that information, guidance and ideas provided by IP Inclusive are not intended as legal or HR advice. You should always seek independent professional advice on legal and HR aspects of your equality, diversity and inclusion policies.
