Sponsored Event | September.22.2020 - September.23.2020Virtual
Orrick is a proud sponsor of the 2020 Virtual Intellectual Property Institute Wednesday, September 23, 2020. The event gathers IP professionals and discusses emerging issues and best practices in copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret and related fields.
Prior to the IP Institute on September 22, Orrick Chairman and CEO Mitch Zuklie and IP Partners Sheryl Koval Garko and Annette Hurst, will speak at the Women in IP Leadership Workshop, a half day event presented by USC Gould Intellectual Property Institute and the Los Angeles Chapter of Chiefs in IP (ChIPs). Mitch and Sheryl will join members from Diversity Lab to discuss “Defining Progress: Metrics on Women and Diversity in Law Leadership.” The panel will focus on the initiatives firms and companies are using to promote women and people of color into leadership positions. Annette will moderate “Redefining the Rules of the Game: Voices of Organizational Change Makers,” which will discuss the June 2019 letter lawmakers sent to Big Tech and the open letter to law firm partners from 170+ GCs pushing for greater diversity, as well as legislative efforts such as California’s law mandating that publicly held companies headquartered in California have at least one female on its board of directors.
