Women IP professionals took time out of their schedules at the INTA Annual Meeting to attend the drinks reception.
There was a great mix of nationalities, with attendees from the US, UK, Switzerland, Zimbabwe, Sweden and China (among plenty of others), and a diverse range of professionals. Partners of international law firms were joined by associates, trade mark administrators and IP officials.

The reception was the latest in the Network’s programme of events. Over the past year there have been one-day conferences in New York, San Jose and London, which have brought together hundreds of women in the profession, as well as virtual events such as webinars.
The next event takes place in New York on June 4. Speakers at the one-day forum include Marian Underweiser of IBM, Cathy Lueders of MasterCard, Catherine Lacavera of Google, and Cooper Jackson of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
