I'm Andrea Brewster, a chartered patent attorney who just can't take her work seriously. This is the story of my exploits with the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA) and the diversity initiative IP Inclusive. It's told from the personal perspective as well as the professional, and although it's a true story, it's been embellished, exaggerated and caricatured almost beyond recognition, in the interests of entertainment you understand. So it is most definitely not an official CIPA or IP Inclusive view on anything. Nor is it intended to denigrate either organisation; I have the utmost respect and affection for both.
