The Diversity Problem in Patent Law
Harrity’s Elaine Spector explains what the diversity landscape in patent law looks like, why the current approaches aren’t working, and what we can do to improve diversity and inclusion in the field as a community in this brief video on ‘The Diversity Problem in Patent Law.’
Patent Pathways (a 501(c)(3)) is a virtual program that focuses on helping the least represented demographic in patent law, Black women, by aiming to register participants with the patent bar and matching them up with mentors and job offers over the course of just one year. The entire program, including patent bar preparation and exam fees, is free to participants thanks to the generosity of Patent Pathways™ sponsors, partners, mentors, and volunteers. We are scaling up the program to 50 participants this year, and need your help!
