Measuring impact of our collective DEI efforts through the power of technology and data.
ADAPT is excited to partner with Harrity & Harrity to bring standardization and transparency to how the patent profession measures diversity, equity and inclusion.
ADAPT will combine data science teams from Google and other ADAPT members with Harrity’s domain expertise to publish and conduct empirical analysis of the state of the profession.
With input from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, ADAPT aims to
map the DEI landscape of the talent pipeline
better understand practical application of technical training to patent prosecution
better understand and measure the career path for patent agents
and much more
ADAPT will open source the underlying data and methodology once established.
