  • LESI Women in Licensing Alliance (WILA) & LESI Young Members Congress (YMC) "Imposter syndrome – is it getting in the way?"

    Virtual | Dates: 24 – 24 Feb, 2022

    LESI-YMC-WILA

    Imposter syndrome, identified in 1978 by social psychologists at Georgia State University, is the phenomenon of believing oneself to be undeserving of their achievements, awards and accomplishments. The self‐doubt and fear of being exposed can undermine even the most capable of us, but imposter syndrome does not have to hold us back in life or work. This workshop looks at how to build your confidence as you work through your career successes and failures, realising that confidence is a journey. Daniel Goleman describes healthy confidence being a high sense of self‐awareness with a true understanding of what you are good at so we will focus on that!

    LESI WILA’s 3rd Webinar in the 2021‐2022 Speakers Series (co‐hosted by LESI YMC) workshop will share tips and techniques on how to beat Imposter Syndrome by combining interaction, developing self‐awareness and specific actionable steps along with understanding what this phenomenon is.

    Guest Speaker: Caroline Donaldson, Kynesis Coaching
    Caroline has extensive experience of working with senior teams and bringing out talent at all levels within an organisation. She has a keen interest in the behavioural aspects of executive and board development, which is supported by over 30 years’ experience as an executive coach. (linkedin.com/in/carolinemdonaldson)

  • LESI Americas Committee "Differences Between and Impact of Compulsory Licenses, Voluntary Licenses, and Waivers"

    Virtual | Dates: 10 – 10 Mar, 2022

    An international panel of licensing executives from Mexico, Brazil, Chile and Canada will explain differences between compulsory licenses, voluntary licenses and waivers with respect to patent and other intellectual property rights and how these respective licenses waivers have local impact in the Americas. 

    For example, a compulsory license is one of the flexibilities in the field of patent protection included in the WTO’s agreement on intellectual property — the TRIPS (Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) Agreement. Under the existing TRIPS provisions, normally the person or company applying for a compulsory license must have first attempted, unsuccessfully, to obtain a voluntary license from the right holder on reasonable commercial terms. Also, the most recently proposed WTO/TRIPS IP waiver of COVID-19 intellectual property goes beyond more traditional waivers (including under existing TRIPS provisions) in that the most recently proposed IP waiver would suspend not just patent rights but also copyrights, trademarks, industrial designs and trade secrets, and in this regard force businesses to disclose their trade secrets – which is a major sticking point for some businesses and some countries.

    The panel will discuss approaches and considerations with various laws and requirements in their jurisdiction and considerations for companies and respective technologies, e.g., medicines, pharmaceuticals. Read about the Panelists/Moderator here.

    Thank you to BC&B (Becerril, Coca & Becerril, SC) for sponsoring the meeting!
