AA Thornton took part in the celebration of IP Inclusive Week, to showcase the importance of diversity and inclusion in the IP professions.
At the start of the week, IP Inclusive launched a pack for running a work experience day, making it easy for firms to invite students to visit their premises and learn about what happens in an IP firm. The pack was authored entirely by employees of AA Thornton, including James Anani-Isaac, Julie Barrett-Major, Chris Burnett, Karen Genuardi, Lucy O’Brien and Suzanne Power, and was based on a day we held for students from St. Marylebone School in the summer. The pack was shared as part of AA Thornton’s commitment under the IP Inclusive charter to share knowledge and resources with the wider IP community to increase diversity and inclusive practice.
On Tuesday we held an international bake sale to raise money for our nominated charity Mind, and people tucked in to a range of goodies including cupcakes, croissants, banana cake and Jamaican Gingerbread (a triumph, even if the author says so himself).
On Wednesday, attorney Chris Burnett visited sixth formers at William De Ferrers School in Essex to talk about Careers in Ideas, and inspire the next generation of IP professionals. Chris very much enjoyed giving the talk, and in particular the question “What was your best ever argument?”
Head of IP Operations Claire Pitman attended North West Kent secretarial college to introduce the students to IP careers, and to provide practical advice on how to apply for jobs, including how to best prepare CVs and covering letters. The students were very inspired by the talk, as most had never heard of IP before.
