Please join the LAIPLA and Women in IP for a fireside chat with Ida Abbott regarding mentoring and gender. Mentoring is based on a relationship. Forming that relationship between men and women can be challenging, especially in the wake of #MeToo. In this fireside chat, we will discuss men mentoring and sponsoring women as well as the benefit of woman sponsoring and mentoring men. The event is not specific to intellectual property law and is open to attorneys in all practice groups. Both men and women are welcome and encouraged to come.
