Closing the gender gap in IP

The first session in a series on Women and IP takes place virtually this Wednesday, 28 April from 12.00 to 13.30 CET. The sharing sessions are organised by WIPO following a decision taken by the Committee on Development and Intellectual Property.

In this session, WIPO says panellists will address barriers that limit women in using the IP system and explore opportunities to enable them to foster their participation in IP.

Speakers come various countries including El Salvador, Chile, Korea and the United States as well as from WIPO.

The sharing sessions aim to:

  • Raise awareness about the need to bridge the existing gender innovation gap and increase participation by women and girls in the innovation ecosystem;
  • Promote the results of WIPO’s work in this area; and
  • Bring together various stakeholders to share their experience and practices in addressing the barriers faced by women and girls in accessing the IP system.

You can see the event programme here and register for free here (registration is open until 11.59 pm CET on 27 April).
