ADAPT works to advance DEI by 

Accessibility to Information.

Scaling DEI efforts across the industry through increased accessibility to resources and information. 

Help the industry jump start DEI efforts by leveraging our database of volunteer and sponsorship opportunities for practitioners looking to join or sponsor an existing effort.

Remove the barriers for creating new DEI programs by releasing member-created templates and resources for launching and running DEI programs.

Connection to People.

ADAPT provide insights on what the career path of an IP attorney can look like and offer opportunities to meet and connect with experienced patent professionals. 

Our mentors from all ADAPT members will connect aspiring patent professionals with the organizations that can support them each step of the way to becoming a patent professional.

ADAPT will soon open applications for the inaugural mentee/mentor cohort for our mentorship program!

Powered by Technology.

Measuring impact of our collective DEI efforts through the power of technology and data. 

ADAPT will standardize DEI reporting so that DEI statistics can be reported in a meaningful way to measure impact. 

To continue the Journey, we are working towards tracking and publishing DEI statistics over time so there is transparency as to the impact of our collective DEI efforts. 

Finally, we will be applying data science to derive insights on DEI issues and to identify potential solutions.

We will open source all data and methodology to the entire community.

"We have a duty as an IP profession to meaningfully represent experiences and viewpoints as diverse as the society in which we live. This is what brings out the best in us, and is the right thing to do. ADAPT can help amplify the experiences we represent in our profession, leaving no company—and no underrepresented voices—behind. The time to advance change is now."
