2016 has been an eventful year, and not always in a good way. But as it draws to a close, I find myself with only positive memories of what IP Inclusive has achieved. And it’s time to say my thank yous. Because whilst I may have been the one standing at the helm, it’s been the many other committed supporters who’ve driven the ship forward, who’ve kept a look-out for threats and opportunities, and who’ve provided the vision and the passion to keep projects on track.
And these are unpaid volunteers, note: busy professionals all. IP Inclusive is powered solely by donations – of time, expertise, hospitality and finance – from the generous individuals and organisations that support us.
So, I would like to say a massive pre-Christmas “thank you”:

I realise I’ve virtually written an Oscars®-night acceptance speech. But what a lovely way to end the year, knowing I have this many friends, and that IP Inclusive really is uniting the IP professions in their commitment to a more diverse and inclusive working environment.
To everyone who’s part of that community: THANK YOU!!
And to everyone who’s thinking of joining us: COME ON IN!!
