Daren Tang

I am committed to ensuring that WIPO works to close the gender gap that currently exists in innovation. Failure to do so means that we are missing out on the innovation and creativity of a large portion of humanity. Innovation ecosystems need to be inclusive and enable participation by all.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Focusing on closing the gender gap within WIPO in terms of the number of women holding senior and leadership positions.
Working with Member States to close the gender gap in IP and innovation by helping them to translate WIPO’s first ever IP Gender Action Plan into concrete actions, plans and initiatives.
