Gender pay gap

In 2017 the UK government introduced new reporting regulations under the Equality Act 2010 requiring companies with over 250 employees to disclose their gender pay gap annually.

The 'LSE Gender Pay Gap Report 2021' sets our results for 2021 in line with the legislative requirements. In accordance with government requirements, the report was published on 30 March 2022 and refers to snapshot data from 31 March 2021.

The report discusses:

  • The impact of the coronavirus pandemic at LSE 
  • Gender Pay Gap results and analysis
  • A breakdown by staff category
  • The role of bonuses
  • What LSE is doing to address inequalities in pay
  • Ongoing and current actions.

Overall in 2021, LSE had 3,723 staff in post, of which 1,965 (53%) were women and 1,758 (47%) were men. This represents a one percentage point increase in favour of women compared to the last reporting period.
