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 2020' report sets our results for 2020 in line with the legislative requirements. In accordance with government requirements, the report was published on 29 March 2021 and refers to snapshot data from 31 March 2020.

The report discusses:

  • the calculation of the pay gap
  • the gaps in pay in evidence between women and men at the School
  • a breakdown by staff category
  • the role of bonuses
  • what LSE is doing to address inequalities in pay.

Overall, in 2020 the median gender pay gap based on Ordinary Pay is 9.52 percent in favour of men. This has decreased by 3.77 percentage points since 2019 (13.29 percent).
