Careers in Ideas Week
Discover what’s happening next week and how you can get involved to help increase diversity and inspire people to join our profession.
Introducing IP as a possible career to a wider audience of young people is essential to creating a more diverse profession – Careers in Ideas Week intends to do just that.
Next week is about more than reaching a new audience, it’s about equipping you with tools, tips and resources so you can make a difference.
We want our profession to reach out to a new audience, to attract a more diverse workforce and to make IP a profession for everyone – no matter their background.
During Careers in Ideas Week, 16th-22nd November, you can expect:
- Webinars that will provide you with skills, tips and resources you need to carry out outreach activities in schools and universities
- An online careers clinic with the IP Futures community, which will include; Q&A opportunities, guidance on job applications, interviews and workplace skills.
- Joint activities with the IP Federation and its members focused on improving social mobility and access to the IP professions.
- Social media activity, for example blog posts and tweets, to share ideas and celebrate what’s being done.
We are excited to be running our own webinar: trade mark career stories. It gives students the chance to hear from our own members about a career in IP. Our panel includes Mark Bearfoot, Hannah Burrows and Azhar Sadique.
