After careful consideration, we have decided to remove from the calendar ACI’s Women Leaders in IP Law Summit originally scheduled for May 5 – 6, 2020 this year.

We have made this decision out of an abundance of caution given COVID-19 concerns. The safety and security of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff, remain ACI’s top priority.

We apologize for the inconvenience but know that this will give us the time we need to make a fantastic event in 2021.

Welcome to the next installment of ACI’s “Women Leaders in Law” series. We invite you to join us this May in Washington, DC at our inaugural Women Leaders in IP Law Summit.

The role of women in the IP arena is evolving with many women leading the charge for critical legal developments, impacting the various facets and disciplines of intellectual property – from patents to copyrights to trademarks. This conference will not only highlight the accomplishments of women in IP, but will also offer advice for women to help other women thrive and excel in the workplace. In addition, we will offer insights on the unique challenges women face in trying to find a work life balance, including addressing the impact of key life events on your IP career.

Attend the ACI Women Leaders in IP Law Summit and learn how to promote diversity and inclusion to increase the prominence of women in the IP legal community. Together, we will discover where the IP community is falling short for women and how to correct this failing. Come and network with women industry leaders to uncover the keys to establishing the credibility and confidence to move up in the ranks to a position of power.
