World IP Day 2023

 Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity


Women in all regions are shaping the world through their imagination, ingenuity and hard work. However, they often face significant challenges in accessing the knowledge, skills, resources and support they need to thrive. World Intellectual Property Day 2023 recognises this under-utilised potential and aims to demonstrate how closing the IP gender gap would benefit everyone in society. Speakers will share their experiences and discuss how to systematically mainstream gender equality considerations across different policies to make the innovation system more inclusive and encourage more participation by women.
