Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in IP
Finding Balance with DEI and Women’s Initiatives
June 6, 2023
On Tuesday, June 6, Sherry Roberg-Perez spoke at the 3rd Annual Summit on Women Leaders in IP Law on the session titled, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in IP: Finding Balance with DEI and Women’s Initiatives.” While DEI initiatives complement women’s initiatives, it is sometimes difficult to ensure that the objectives of both are aligned. Panelists discussed some of the most pressing challenges in this area, including:
- Expanding opportunities for women’s inventorship while still being mindful of DEI objectives
- Examining how law firms can attract a more diverse pool of candidates and retain them
- DEI in the law setting: Law firms, government, corporations – who is getting it right?
- Wellness and belonging component
