Women in IP’s annual event this year is focusing on “quick wins” for IP Inclusive Charter signatories. What can you do at your organisation to improve D&I? How can you build a more inclusive and supportive workplace? We’ll be exploring these and similar questions alongside our expert panellists, generating practical tips and ideas to help both small and large organisations support their employees and improve D&I.
The event is also being accompanied by a survey (see below) and the outcomes will be collated into a template for IP Inclusive Charter signatories to identify quick wins in terms of, for instance, internal policies, staff activities, networks to join, relevant external charters, and lots more.
This event is being kindly hosted by Abel + Imray.
The following panellists will share their experiences and provide advice:
- Jane Burton, Chair of the Lawyers with Disabilities Division of the Law Society of England and Wales
- Kate Swaine, Head of IP at Gowling WLG UK LLP
- Krishna Kakkaiyadi, Associate at Pinsent Masons LLP
- Wayne Spillett, Head of Legal – Commercial Operations at Vodafone
This event is open to all IP professionals, regardless of gender, role or career level. Please encourage a colleague to come along with you, particularly if they haven’t been involved in IP Inclusive before.
Women in IP will be inviting supporters of all five of our communities to join the event, which will cover all aspects of diversity and inclusion.
Please join the survey!
To accompany this event, we are surveying the IP Inclusive community to find out impressions of what D&I-related initiatives make a difference, and gather ideas of “quick wins” that have been successful in the past. We will use this to generate a Quick Wins ideas sheet that you can use to help make changes in your organisation. The survey is anonymous and all questions are optional. Please complete it here.
