Event description

Description

Are you interested in improving diversity in the IP industry?

UDL Intellectual Property is delighted to host one of the AIPLA’s concurrent global networking events to celebrate women in IP. This will be the twelfth year of the event, with this year’s set to be bigger and better than ever.

Anyone, male or female, is welcome to join us at the Secret Bar in the fabulous Lost & Found Leeds Club (on Albion Place) for a discussion about diversity and inclusivity in IP and how we can improve this together. Places are limited, so please book now to avoid disappointment.

The event will feature speakers from across the IP profession and a short livestream video from AIPLA to introduce the event and link with other hosts from around the world. This is a great chance to discuss the challenges and opportunities around diversity in IP and STEM careers, and connect with like-minded professionals. We’ll also have a nice selection of nibbles and drinks to work through during the evening.

We hope to see you there!
