Diversity and inclusion

Introduction

LSE Careers is committed to offering a positive and successful experience for all members of our diverse student and graduate community. We champion equal opportunities and believe that career opportunities should be open to all, regardless of age, disability, gender, marital status, maternity, race, religion, or sexual orientation. To support this, we run several diversity-focused events and student support initiatives in areas including being Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME)*, disabled, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) and based on gender and social mobility.

We also work closely with other relevant departments across the School including the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion team and the Widening Participation team.

Read our diversity statement for more information on our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The LSE Careers team are incredibly passionate about supporting students in their career planning to find roles that they can thrive in. We’re here to help all students develop the confidence and skills to succeed in securing employment in the right environment for them, where they also feel respected and able to be their whole self.

It is up to all of us to work towards achieving an inclusive environment at university and in the workplace, with the hope this will reduce disadvantage and give everyone the opportunity to realise their ambitions.

Our initiatives

We want to make sure there is support available for all LSE students, regardless of your background.

*A note on terminology Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) are umbrella terms used by the UK government and the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) to refer to all non-white people. However, we recognise that these terms are problematic, in that they mask differences in lived experience and outcomes for many different ethnic groups. Improving our community’s understanding of these differences will be part of our work on race equity at LSE.
