The 2020 Global Gender Gap Report, published by the World Economic Forum, shows that gender parity will not be attained for 99.5 years. In the intellectual property (IP) industry, even though genders are similarly creative and innovative, it is not a secret to say that the field is predominantly male-oriented. Women are, for instance, underrepresented in patenting; one study has even projected that women will not see parity in patenting until 2092! This issue is addressed by the World...
