Gender Diversity in Innovation Toolkit Virtual Roadshow

Diversity in innovation is crucial to a corporation or university’s long-term success. The causes for and ways to achieve diversity in innovation are many and vary by region, organization, and other factors.

Our panel of experts will discuss the USPTO’s (US Patent and Trademark Office) Progress and Potential Report and gender diversity statistics, the USPTO’s new diversity in innovation toolkit, IPO’s Gender Diversity in Innovation Toolkit, and the AUTM University and Tech Transfer Toolkit. We will examine these various perspectives and discuss how you can use these tools to positively impact the diversity in innovation culture within your organization.
