Women in Intellectual Property (IP) symposium series

Women in IP

Beginning in 2023, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has annually hosted delegates from intellectual property offices and organizations (IPOs) from around the world, with each year's event aligning with the International Women's Day theme. This three-day symposium focuses on a variety of topics directed at supporting and empowering women and girls and expanding inclusive access for them to all areas of the intellectual property (IP) ecosystem. It also offers opportunities to enhance attendees global view of IP protection.
