Careers support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) students

Supporting you during your LSE studies

LSE Careers aims to provide students identifying as LGBTQ+ with valuable resources, advice, and opportunities to engage with inclusive employers during their time at LSE. In addition to our core offer, this includes bespoke events with both employers and LGBTQ+ alumni, access to a range of up-to-date online resources, careers blogs, and more – all aimed at supporting you to shape your career journey. In short, we aim to help you approach your job search and preparation for graduate recruitment and selection and empower you to feel more confident in bringing your whole self to work.

Our initiatives


  • You can book an online or in-person careers appointment to discuss any careers-related query including disclosure at work, coming out at work, identifying inclusive employers, and including your LGBTQ+ professional activities in your applications. LSE Careers is here to support you no matter what stage you are at and we can highlight advice and resources relevant to you, including some mentioned on this page.


  • Keep an eye on CareerHub for our upcoming events for students and recent alumni who identify as LGBTQ+. You will also find reminders of external LGBTQ+ careers events including employer-specific events. Before a networking event, check out our networking guidance.

    Examples of our previous LSE events include:

    • LGBTQ+ employer panel and networking evening
    • LGBTQ+ student and alumni speed-networking careers brunch
    • Virtual careers panel for global LGBTQ+ alumni
