MIP International Women's Leadership Forum 2017 - San Jose

November 7, Fairmont San Jose


One of the original women in IP networking events in California, the MIP International Women’s Leadership Forum , returned for its fourth year to San Jose on November 7 at the Fairmont San Jose Hotel.

The event has gone from strength to strength and has run 13 times globally in the past four years. Managing IP is keen to continue supporting women in IP and this year's programme demonstrates the critical topics facing women counsel today. As always, the Forum provided an excellent networking opportunity for women in-house and IP counsel, as well as private practice advisers, to come together and discuss the role of women in law against a backdrop of the latest global IP issues.

All delegates who attended the event were also invited to become members of the MIP Women in IP Global Network , an exclusive invite-only, online networking platform which will connect them with over 1000 women internationally.

Key takeaways and photos will be made available shortly but for advance notice of the event's return, get in touch with us at
