About LSE Power

Professional women's network

Our mission

LSE Power aims to engage with professional services staff of all gender groups within LSE to encourage and champion behaviour change and development of School policy towards gender equality.

The School currently suffers from gender inequality at the senior leadership level, with a lack of female representation in high level professional services roles. The LSE Power network is focused on tackling this challenge.

Our activities

  • We work to actively inform changes to LSE policy and culture to bring about greater gender equality, through representation, consultation and monitoring.
  • We provide a forum where members can share their experiences and learn from one another.
  • We encourage members to realise their potential within LSE by providing you with professional development opportunities including training, networking and events.
  • We hold termly events that facilitate the aims of the network and the interests of the members.

Our priorities

Investigate: Work with EDI and HR teams to understand and make visible the experiences of female professional services staff, in particular at the intersections of gender, race, bands, and academic/PSS.

Communicate: Be a ‘critical friend’ to the School, represent our members in shaping School-wide plans

Represent: Increase our representation across LSE through targeted efforts

Connect: take advantage of School-wide themes linked to LSE 2030 ('Inclusive LSE', 'Healthy LSE', and 'Empowered LSE') to amplify LSE Power actions.
