By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: In the year 2000, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) decided to designate an annual World Intellectual Property Day to address the perceived gap between intellectual property (IP) as a business/legal concept and its relevance to people’s lives.
World Intellectual Property Day is observed on April 26 each year with a variety of events and activities worldwide.
It aims to increase awareness and understanding of IP.
The theme in celebration of World IP Day 2023 is “Women and IP: Accelerating innovation and creativity.”
This year’s theme is geared towards celebrating the “can do” attitude of women inventors, creators and entrepreneurs around the world and their groundbreaking work.
Women make up nearly half of the global population (49.58%) and represent a huge pool of talent, which remains largely untapped.
Women in all regions are shaping the world through their imagination, ingenuity and hard work, but often face significant challenges in accessing the knowledge, skills, resources and support they need to thrive.
The Belize Intellectual Property Office’s (BELIPO) overall goal is to build a modern intellectual property system that values and protects the vibrant creative culture of Belize. In achieving this goal, BELIPO tries to promote the development of more inclusive and diverse IP ecosystems that accelerate innovation, creativity and business growth for the benefit of all.
BELIPO hopes to encourage Belizean women inventors, creators and entrepreneurs to tap into the IP system.
In celebration of World IP Day 2023, BELIPO, under the auspices of the Attorney General’s Ministry, is releasing a mini feature of women in IP and will have a Women’s mini expo.
The mini expo is being held from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. today at the Belmopan Civic Center.
Be sure to support local women entrepreneurs who will be displaying and selling their products and sharing how registering their IP is benefiting their business.
