The MIP International Women's Leadership Forum returned to California for its third successive year in Palo Alto on November 29. The Forum gets bigger and better every year and is supported by a string of successful events in New York and London. The 2016 programme focused on IP developments in the US and globally and provided an opportunity for women in IP to hear from thought leaders on subjects such as alternatives to litigation, practical strategies for protection software innovation, as well as recent developments in licensing and trade mark law. The day was interspersed with interactive and engaging networking sessions, with delegates sharing first-hand experience of what it is like to be a woman working in IP and in the wider legal industry. As an inclusive event, networking opportunities were welcomed by those just starting their careers and those who hold more experience, women as well as men. The Forum will continue to support the advancement of women counsel in the IP industry and will continue to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experiences of women in leadership and senior IP roles with those seeking to progress further in their careers.
