WIPO session on Closing the Gender Gap in Intellectual Property

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) will hold the first session on Closing the Gender Gap in Intellectual Property on 28 April 2021.

The online event is part of a series of sharing sessions in light of WIPO initiatives around Gender Equality, Diversity and Intellectual Property.

The first session theme is Mapping and Addressing Barriers to close the gender gap in Intellectual Property.

The program “will map the existing barriers that prevent women from using the IP system in greater numbers and with greater benefits, and will explore opportunities to foster their participation based on case studies from Chile and South Korea”. You can review here the full program and the list of speakers.

The event will be held in English, but interpretation in French and Spanish will be provided.

The session is free of charge, but you can register here. The event will also be streamed here (no registration required).
