Athena SWAN Bronze Award Holder

Now more than ever, in these uncertain times, we have to come together as a community to stamp out inequality and create an environment in which everyone can thrive. This award is a starting point, not an end in itself and we look forward to implementing our ambitious action plan.

LSE received a Bronze award from charter Athena SWAN in April 2020, in recognition of our commitment to gender equality.

The charter mark is given to institutions advancing gender equality in higher education, through representation, progression and success for all. It shows LSE has a solid foundation and strong evidence-based plans in place to eliminate gender bias and develop an inclusive culture.

These plans include objectives on increasing the recruitment of women and promoting the career development of female staff. View the Athena SWAN Action Plan here.
