Gender & IP: Addressing the Gap - Univ of Texas next week

In Austin next week, Feb 21, Univ of Texas is holding its annual IP symposium. This year the topic is a very timely one and near and dear to me: Gender and IP. Speakers include judges and USPTO directors and my panel include Dan Burk (UCI) and Melissa Wasserman (Texas). I will be presenting the same paper I presented last week in Santa Clara's WIPIP, which Eric Goldman masterfully hosted. The paper is called Exit, Voice & Innovation: How Human Capital Policy Impacts Equality (& How Inequality Hurts Growth) based on my Frankel lecture, nearby in Houston last semester. The field of innovation and equality is surprisingly thin and I am happy there is current momentum, supported by a new gender and IP report by the USPTO to address this gap in the literature and in practice.

If you are in Austin, hope to see you.
