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 2023' sets our results for 2023 in line with the legislative requirements. In accordance with government requirements, the report was published on 30 March 2024 and refers to snapshot data from 31 March 2023.

The report discusses:

  • The context of the report in terms of timing
  • 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 2023, LSE had 4,212 staff in post, of which 2,316 (55%) were women and 1,896 (45%) were men. This represents a one percentage point increase in favour of women compared to the last reporting period.
