At LSE, there’s a growing focus on support specifically for BAME* students, and that includes the support we provide at LSE Careers. Across this academic year, we’ve introduced several initiatives to help promote inclusivity and empower all students to be the best they can be, and help you feel you can bring your whole self to the workplace. That includes the launch of our termly newsletter for BME* students as well as a number of panel events where students are able to question and network with employers dedicated to creating an inclusive work environment.
- You can book an online or in-person careers appointment to discuss any careers-related query, whether you have a specific question or want to start exploring the support and opportunities open to you. LSE Careers is here to support you no matter what stage you’re at in your career planning and we can highlight advice and resources relevant to you, some of which we have mentioned below.
- BME* recruitment and networking events – for students and graduates to meet with employers wanting to recruit a diverse workforce.
- BME* alumni panel – for students and graduates to hear from alumni about their experiences of ethnicity in the workplace.

*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.
