Women in IP

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is hosting delegates from intellectual property offices from around the world, both in person and online for a three-day workshop March 7 - 9, 2023, on the priority topics of mentorship, voluntary employee organizations and demographic data. The event will align with the 2023 International Women’s Day theme, “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.” Topics will address the current and future-state of underrepresentation among women within the intellectual property ecosystem.

This year, the USPTO observes International Women’s Day by joining over 24 intellectual property (IP) offices and organizations in sharing this joint statement on International Women's Day recognizing the importance of diversity in innovation and creativity and the incredible value that women bring to economic progress worldwide.
