The EUIPO has officially joined the project by signing a manifest containing the major goals of the initiative:

  • Avoid ‘all-male’ panels of experts and ensure the participation of women whenever possible.
  • Make visible and celebrate the role and contribution of women to the progress of the EU in its different fields.
  • Foster the creation of networks of female experts to facilitate their visibility.

EUIPO is the European Union Intellectual Property Office responsible for managing the EU trademark and the registered Community design. EUIPO works with the IP offices of the EU Member States and international partners to offer a similar registration experience for trademarks and designs across Europe and the world.

The signatories are also committed to counting how many female experts have taken part as speakers in their events every year, intending to progressively improve the number. The participation of women as speakers in conferences and debates has increased from 39% in 2018 to 48% in 2019 among the participating organizations.

With this initiative, the EUIPO continues to support its commitment to gender equality and equal opportunities, which is reflected in the Office’s staff policies as well as on the activities held every 8th of March and the regular awareness-raising campaigns on women and IP.
