International Women's Leadership Forum 2019

June 6, Convene 810 Seventh Avenue, New York


Drawing from the success of events in London and Palo Alto, the MIP International Women’s Leadership Forum returned to New York for the sixth consecutive year on June 6. The interactive one-day forum focused on US and international IP developments, providing an opportunity for women in IP to network and learn from industry thought leaders. 
Throughout the day, dynamic discussions examined best practice around leadership, techniques for efficient and effective management of IP, as well as how to embrace change and encourage empowerment through communication. Leading general and IP counsel shared their valuable experiences, thoughts and insights with an audience of 100+ women to promote the next generation of women in IP. 
As always, the MIP International Women’s Leadership Forum is an inclusive event, welcoming newly admitted lawyers, associates, partner, legal counsel through senior in-house counsel, as well as men.


Key takeaways and photos will be made available shortly.

The breakout groups were all excellent - it is a wonderful experience to hear from others and share experience. It was very thought provoking and I have come away with questions for my GC and CEO regarding diversity and inclusiveness. Such topics are not discussed enough.”
