Neena was interviewed about her summit on the Influential Entrepreneurs podcast, listen here:
Speer commented, “I am committed to breaking the statistic that less than 1.8% of IP lawyers are a minority. We will encourage others to see each other by recruiting only diverse speakers. It may not be popular, but we know a lot of PHENOMENAL SPEAKERS who are MINORITIES IN THIS FIELD and who don’t have the right opportunities. We aim to be that resource.
She continued, “We want more young minority lawyers to take an interest in courses taught by minority intellectual property lawyers and many legal conferences offer a financial restriction that can prevent aspiring intellectual property lawyers from intellectual to acquire the knowledge they need. This is a free event intended to provide 8-12 FREE KEY HOURS to aspiring IP professionals. If you are interested in sponsoring with a freebie of your IP course, software, access to your CRM, and even payment processor, marketing, VA services, let us know what it’s rated at so we can give you the appropriate referral credit.
The top roster includes a phenomenally talented minority woman and a minority male who are all at different levels of their trademark law practice.
