What does a “typical” career in IP entail, and how are women faring as IP professionals? These are a few of the important questions that will be addressed by our panel of successful women who have made a mark in the IP field by taking risks and pursuing career paths that are bold and visionary. With Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) being recognized as key goals for business and society, this panel is very timely and relevant.
Moderated by Gene Quinn, the founder of IPWatchdog.com and one of the top IP strategists in the world, join us on Tuesday, July 13, at 2 PM ET, as we follow the paths of these Women IP Trailblazers, who not only “talk the talk” but actually “walk the walk”, having paved a path for others to follow.
- Angela Grayson, a former corporate IP attorney at companies including Pfizer, Eli Lilly, DuPont, and Walmart, will discuss her career decision to leave the corporate world behind and open Precipice IP, PLLC, helping emerging and growth sci-tech companies with their IP strategy.
- Mary Juetten, a LegalTech entrepreneur and a recognized thought leader on topics related to IP identification and protection and the future of the legal profession, will share her experience starting Traklight (a SaaS IP management platform) and morphing her career over time to become a collaborative business lawyer and mediator.
- Efrat Kasznik, who heads the only woman-run IP valuation firm in the country, will discuss her experience as an IP valuation expert, Silicon Valley entrepreneur, and Stanford lecturer, and how these experiences have shaped her decision to start Foresight Valuation Group.
- Renee Quinn, who, before moving into business, began her professional career as a mental health therapist, will share her experience of how she went from working part-time for IPWatchdog to working hand in hand with Gene Quinn to help build IPWatchdog into the Intellectual Property powerhouse it is today.
