Please join Cardozo Law School for World IP Day on April 26th from 6 – 8 pm. This year’s theme for World IP Day is Powering Change: Women in Innovation and Creativity. During the program, they will introduce the newly-launched Cardozo/Google Project for Patent Diversity, a Google-funded initiative designed to increase the number of patents issued to women and underserved minorities. The Project is bringing together resource-constrained women and underserved minorities with law firms and in-house counsel willing to provide pro bonoservices for patent procurement. Jeanne C. Curtisis the director of the Project and is eager for you and your respective organizations to learn about it, as well as to hear a broader discussion about the underlying issue of lack of parity in innovation. Also, while this event is focused on the lack of gender parity in innovation, we know from existing studies that similar trends and dynamics exist with respect to underserved minorities, and many of the solutions being engineered (including the Cardozo/Google Project) address the lack of parity in innovation for minorities as well as for women.
Food and refreshments will be available following the program, and for attorneys 1.0 diversity CLE credit is available.
