Women in IP Law Committee Lean-In Circle

Dear AIPLA Women in IP Law Committee Members,
On behalf of the AIPLA Women in IP Law committee, I invite you to join our Lean In Circle. Lean In provides a forum for peers to meet, learn and share together. Our circle meetings will be a monthly brown-bag lunch, beginning in January 2014. A typical meeting would include a short, online video lecture, followed by an open group discussion. The lectures cover a range of fascinating topics related to empowering women in the workplace. So bring your lunch to work, kick back at your desk, and join your peers for an educational and exciting lunch hour!
If you would like to join our Lean In Circle, please reply to Jessica Ergmann at jessica.ergmann@draeger.com!
Thank you for your support, and the Women in IP Law committee looks forward to launching our Lean In Circle!

Warm Regards,
Jessica Ergmann
