As 2019 draws to a close, we want to give thanks for so much.  We are honored that ChIPs, a nonprofit that connects women in technology, law, and policy, has recognized DLA Piper as one of the top 10 highest scoring firms on the Inclusion Blueprint – read more about this survey and about DLA Piper’s deep commitment to gender diversity and inclusion.

The centerfold of this issue of Intellectual Property and Technology News features the firm’s annual Women in IP Law CLE Luncheon.  This is the 13th time we’ve hosted this important event, and we are gratified at its long-term success as a showcase for women as leaders in the IPT field.  We also want to let you know about WEL, Women Emerging Leaders, a DLA Piper program that develops junior female partners into firm leaders with strong business development skills.  The program is designed to increase business acumen, provide opportunities for enhancement of business development skills, allow for a better understanding of leadership within our global firm, and develop, reward, and attract women lawyers – all of which are priorities of the firm and consistent with the goals and objectives of DLA Piper’s Leadership Alliance for Women (LAW).
