IP Financial Friday: Gender Parity in Patents


WIPO: Innovation Gender Parity Gap Shrinking Slowly

WIPO’s April World IP Day theme was “Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity.” This week, they followed up with a detailed report showing that the percentage of women inventors is increasing, but gender parity is decades away and will vary substantially by region.

Only 38 More Years to Go

  • At the current pace, we’ll close the overall gender gap in international patenting by 2061.
