• How do people currently working in engineering perceive the culture?
• How inclusive is the culture of engineering currently?
• How can the sector create a more inclusive culture for the future?
The deadline for the survey is 27 Jan.

This GSE-specific IP training day is open to anyone in the GSE Profession. It includes time with a patent examiner working in your area of technology, and counts for CPD. For more information, please see the event flyer and poster. Deadline: 27 Jan 2017. Contact: GSE@ipo.gov.uk.
