Diversity Roundtable - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Practical Approaches to Make a Difference

The AIPLA Diversity in IP Law Committee brings you a Diversity Roundtable that encouraged participants to share diversity, equity and inclusion ("DEI") practices that have been implemented at their respective organizations so that we can all learn from each other and take insights back with us after the program. The discussion was facilitated by speakers from in-house and private practicethat lead break-out discussions on the following themes:

1. Ensuring the Right Stakeholders are Involved in DEI

  • Who are the stakeholders and how should they be involved in DEI discussions?
  • How to balance the burden placed on black/minority attorneys to lead DEI efforts.
2. Allyship: Facilitating Allyship, and Having Respectful and Positive Discussions of Race and Racism
  • How to be better allies.
  • Being an ally both at the office and in our personal lives.
