Women in IP Committee

Charter

The committee will seek to promote the advancement of women in IP law and to increase the diversity of IPO’s membership. The committee will develop programming and initiatives on topics relevant to this goal, and will engage with other standing committees to collaborate on items of interest to the membership at large. The committee will interface with women in IP law across the community, including women working in corporations, law firms, universities, and government.

Encouraging the Retention and Advancement of Women:

The Women in IP Push Forward Subcommittee’s goal of retaining and advancing women in the legal profession generated practical resources to help members and member companies build and expand practices benefitting women in IP.
