WIPO – in collaboration with Invent Together – is organizing a series of online seminars with intellectual property (IP) offices and innovation stakeholders on the IP gender and diversity gaps in the Asia-Pacific region, on November 30 – December 1, 2022.
These virtual seminar series on the IP gender and diversity gap bring together stakeholders in the innovation ecosystem, with the goal to raise awareness, evaluate it quantitatively and qualitatively, and discuss policies and other actions that show promise in addressing it.
