To help our knowledge, understanding and skills in this important area, the School has developed its own Equality and diversity online module.
All new starters should complete this module within 3 months of starting at LSE.
What the module covers
the main principles of equality and diversity and legislation;
how equality and diversity impacts on us all
outlines the key resources and policies
The course should take about 30 minutes and you are able to leave the module and then return to the same point, so it is not necessary to complete it all at one time.
There is an assessment at the end of the module which allows users to assess their knowledge.
Once you've accessed the module, click on the link under the New users section of the sign-in screen to show the Self-registration panel.
Complete all the fields, remember to give your LSE email address as your username and select the Register button.
You will then receive an email confirmation message with a new password that you can use to sign in. The first time you sign in you may be asked to enter a new password. If so, remember that your password needs to be at least six characters long and should ideally include both letters and numbers.
Confidentiality of results
The results of your indivdual course will be anonymous. A record will be held of your results when you complete the module. This will include when the module was started and completed, along with scores of the module assessment.
In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, we will only use them for statistical reports which monitor uptake and completion of the module. This information will be made available to Heads of Department, Centre Directors and Divisional Service Leaders.
