World Intellectual Property Day – April 26, 2023
Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity
Every April 26th, we celebrate World Intellectual Property Day to learn about the role that intellectual property (IP) rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity.
This year, AIPLA co-hosted a standing-room only event in honor of 2023 World Intellectual Property Day to celebrate this year’s theme – Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity.
We were joined by both congressional leaders on IP issues, Sen. Chris Coons, Chair of the Senate Judiciary IP Subcommittee, and Rep. Darrell Issa, Chair of the House IP Subcommittee. Sen. Mazie Hirono generously sponsored the event on Capitol Hill. We had a great lineup of speakers including USPTO Director Kathi Vidal, Register of Copyrights Shira Perlmutter, a panel of female entrepreneurs and changemakers, and many more. The speakers noted that there has been more effort on the part of businesses and government to elevate women in the innovation space, but that more can and needs to be done to reduce barriers and make innovation and creation more accessible to all.
