Speer commented, “I am committed to breaking the statistic that less than 1.8% of intellectual property lawyers are in the minority. We will encourage others to see each other by recruiting only diverse speakers. It may not be popular, but we know of many PHENOMENAL SPEAKERS who are MINORITIES by classification but ultimately MINORITIES BY PERFORMANCE IN THIS FIELD. Many areas of complaint in this area is that we don’t have the right opportunities to showcase our gifts. We aim to be that resource.
She continued, “We want to help more young minority lawyers interested in courses offered by minority intellectual property lawyers and legal conferences like INTA by removing this restriction that holds back aspiring intellectual property lawyers. . This is a free event intended to provide 8-12 FREE KEY HOURS to aspiring IP professionals. If you are interested in sponsoring with a gift of your IP course, software, access to your CRM, payment processor, marketing and even VA services, let us know what it is rated at so we can give you the referral credit appropriate.
The top roster includes a phenomenally talented female minority and a male roster who are all at varying levels of their trademark law practice. So, plan to attend this event for these amazing IP lessons.
