BAME representation levels in the UK’s IP sector
AIPPI UK members participated in a virtual round table attended by over 50 IP professionals, under the auspices of IP Inclusive.
Those at the meeting agreed statements of principle, by which it was felt the UK’s IP professions should stand together in support of racial and ethnic equality. The group will now agree some commitments to action, which will be published shortly, and will work together to turn those commitments into positive change.
