Managing IP celebrates International Women’s Day

adobestock-251406069.jpg

Read our interviews with female judges and IP chiefs, and articles on topics such as mentorship and career-building for women in IP

The past year has been a trying time for professionals, but especially for women, including those in intellectual property.

We know this because female in-house and private practice spoke to Managing IP at various points throughout the year about their struggles with mentorship, career progression and looking after young children while working from home.

This International Women’s Day, we felt it was important to recognise those hardships – which is why we’ve collated articles from the past year covering these challenges.

We also thought it was important on this day (and really every other day) to showcase female leaders in IP, which is why we’ve gathered our interviews with female judges, company heads and IP office chiefs as well.

You can find all the articles below. Happy International Women’s Day.
