To recognise International Women’s Day, GJE is celebrating the many successful women we have working with us. Over the last year they have been recognised for their achievements in industry, encouraged the next generation of women to participate in STEM education and travelled the world whilst working remotely. We are proud of all of their achievements – which are far too many to detail here – and look forward to many more in 2018.
Below are some of our highlights.
Rowena Price was recognised by Expert Guides as a leading Woman in Business Law in September 2017. The guide endorses the most talented and reputable women in the industry and we are delighted that Rowena was nominated and recognised for her outstanding work.
Fiona Stevens was listed in Management Today’s 35 under 35 which is a list of the UK’s most promising and talented young business women. She also spoke at the Enterprising Women Conference at Chichester University which aimed to motivate school girls to participate in STEM education and showcase the career prospects available to them.
Lucy Samuels was listed in the IP Stars Top 250 Women in IP 2017. The international ranking recognises female IP practitioners who have accomplished outstanding work for their clients. Lucy also hosted the AIPLA Women in IP Law event in London which connected with other events internationally to discuss and raise awareness of women’s issues in IP.
Heather Lane worked remotely throughout 2017 whilst she travelled internationally with Remote Year, visiting a different country every month, all while continuing to service her clients needs and build her practice. You can read about her adventure via her blog, Notes from a Digital Nomad.
At GJE we are proud to align ourselves with International Women’s Day which celebrates the achievements of women worldwide and encourages greater inclusivity and equality. We continue to work with organisations such as IP Inclusive to help drive this agenda.
