Patents & Diversity

This year there have been increasing conversations and resources created to address concerns with a lack of diversity in inventing and those that are granted patents.

Check out the video from our CLE social justice luncheon discussion of the struggles for patent ownership in the African-American community and the SUCCESS Act.  The presenters that led this discussion were Kara W. Swanson, Professor of Law and Affiliate Professor of History at Northeastern University and Brittany Amadi, Partner at WilmerHale.

Last month, the USPTO launched the Expanding Innovation Hub, an online platform available on the USPTO website that provides resources for inventors and practitioners to encourage greater participation in the patent system.
