At World IP Review, we’re passionate about moving past the standard issues and trying to understand the reality for employers and employees.
Join us on December 7-8, 2021 for Diversity in IP, as we explore some of the most pertinent D&I issues facing the legal industry, including:
Why diversity matters
How firms can help the move toward a more equitable workplace
What a diverse workforce means for the bottom line
The daily reality for minority groups and how to overcome adversity
We'll also explore how to support the many ways people express, experience, and identify their gender and sexual orientation in the workplace. How can we call out prejudice and what strategies can we use to ensure we can communicate in an open environment?
Until We Meet Again in Person
It feels like forever since we were able to play host to the world’s intellectual property community in person. We’re delighted to have remained in contact with so many of you through our online community platforms and newsletters and, when fortunate enough, via phone and video calls.
There has been an enormous appetite for our virtual conferences, which have been a great success—and we’re delighted now to welcome you to register for Diversity in IP.
Following on from the hugely successful in-person conferences in Boston, London, and San Francisco, this two-day online conference takes a broad global view of the current status of women and minorities working in IP—and then delves deeper into the topics of specific current interest.
Over 50% of Diversity in IP Attendees Are In-House Counsel
As with our in-person conferences, Diversity in IP presents an unrivalled gathering of in-house IP counsel, along with their private practice counterparts, to listen to updates on the latest thinking on how best to put together strategies to employ a more diverse cohort of individuals.
This is an invaluable opportunity for delegates to submit pressing questions live, and source the strategies by which they can truly benefit from employing a diverse group of attorneys—which appeals specifically to your corporate clients—as well as providing timely advice for minority groups on how to overcome the adversity in the law which is still present.
Over The Course of Two Days, We Will Examine Topics Including:
Why diversity matters
Which are the leading firms and what steps have they taken to achieve equality?
What does a diverse workforce mean for the bottom line?
The reality for disadvantaged groups and how to overcome adversity
The value of mentoring
What does a culture-changing monitoring programme look like in practice?
What issues are LGBTQ+ lawyers facing?
How to call out prejudice
Minority groups in positions of leadership: the issues, the challenges and the solutions
