Influential Women in IP

WIPR Influential Women in IP provides a positive focus on the development and progress that women in IP have made in creating, protecting, and securing IP.

At World IP Review, we want to ensure that the women at the top of their game, as well as those climbing the ranks, are given the exposure and opportunities they deserve. So, as part of the WIPR Influential Women in IP project we have compiled a dedicated list of 80 women who have built some of the most successful careers in IP and 20 women who, with fewer than 10 years of practice, are already making waves in the industry. 

Interested in taking a look at our launch publication? You can find it here.
