THE INCLUSION PROJECT: FICPI’S COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
FICPI’s legacy is as an organisation built on a truly global community of independent IP attorneys.
Founded more than 100 years ago, FICPI currently has more than 5,500 members drawn from 80 countries and regions across six continents.
The FICPI business family makes the world a little bit smaller, bringing independent IP attorneys from around the globe together to connect, share knowledge and grow.
However, we understand that, to reach our full potential as an organisation and to be an effective community of members from around the world, there is more to be done.
For that reason, we have created the Inclusion Project.
FICPI embraces the principles of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) as a core idea in our culture and business strategy.
EQUITY is the process of ensuring that processes and programmes are impartial, fair and provide equal possible outcomes for every individual.
INCLUSION means instilling a sense of belonging to the organisation by ensuring that every person has an opportunity to contribute at any level and feels safe in doing so.
ACCESSIBILITY a foundation on which the federation must build diversity, equity and inclusion for people with disabilities.
