Please join us over lunch to celebrate the 2021 launch of the latest community, the IP Non-traditional Family Network. This will be a relaxed meet, with introductions from some network members, plus a talk from guest speaker Justine Long of the solo parent charity Gingerbread.

The IP Non-traditional Family Network is a community for people in solo parent families, blended families, adoptive families, LGBT+ families and other non-traditional families in the UK IP professions. It’s also for their allies. The network provides support and a safe space for sharing ideas.

Members and allies are invited to come along and say hello! Please RSVP to [email protected]

More about gingerbread

Gingerbread is a national charity that provides information to help single parents support themselves and their families. They campaign and influence policy to reduce stigma against single parents, and make services more accessible to all families – whatever their shape or size.

As the “What we do” page of their website says:

We want a society in which single parent families are treated equally and fairly.” 

Who's invited?

This event is open to all UK-based IP professionals, whatever your role or career level and whatever type of organisation you work in.


This event is free. So are all of IP Inclsuive's resources. We think it’s important to keep IP Inclusive events the right side of the paywall.

That said, it does need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoy the event please consider contributing to the 2021-22 fundraising campaign. For individual ad hoc donations, the crowdfunding page is here. Or for more information – including for corporate sponsors – visit the general fundraising page here.
