We have partnered with Genderscope, a previous LSE Generate funding competition winner, to create a 'Gender Sensitive Code of Conduct.' This code is a physical manifestation of the ideals that we hold within the Generate team, and the philosophy that we would like to pass on to our LSE entrepreneurs.
Throughout the code, we explore current policies at LSE that we reaffirm our commitment to, such as maternity & paternity leave, the LSE code of ethics, and the LSE policy on disability. We also present future action-driven commitments demonstrating how we will be continuing to promote gender equality and diversity in the Generate program. Examples of these commitments include applying equal gender respresentation to our Advisory Board and our Generate Ambassador programme, 'gender mainstreaming' our social media and communications and allocating a budget for gender trainings, events and consultations.
Genderscope is a gender consultancy focusing on the private sector. Holding a uniquely comprehensive approach to gender, they address both the socio-cultural as well as the legal and policy aspects of a business and provide bespoke training and consultation to bring about and utilise the gender dimension specific to each client.
A Message from Genderscope:
Working with LSE Generate has been a great experience for us and we wish to acknowledge their leadership in achieving gender equality in the workplace. Both LJ and Emily were very keen to learn how they can incorporate a gender lens to their work and already held a clear understanding of the necessity and benefits of a strong commitment to gender equality.
Through our consultation meetings and further engagements, it was fascinating to explore together the widely different aspects of their work, then identify the places that require intervention and decide on the right kind of action that compliments the general LSE gender-related framework and feels organic to their vision of Generate as a global social entrepreneurship hub.
We are very proud of this Gender Sensitive Code of Conduct and are excited to see the changes it will bring about in the work of LSE Generate and all their stakeholders.
As they grow and expand, we will be here to support them.
