The School’s commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion is one of its six strategic priorities, as highlighted in the LSE Strategy 2020, and ‘equality of respect and opportunity’ is one of the core principles set out in the School’s Ethics Code. The School's EDI Office acts to promote and further LSE’s commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion for all members of the School community.

Examples of LSE's work:

  • Athena SWAN is a national charter mark – run by the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) – that recognises the advancement of gender equality in higher education: representation, progression and success for all. The School has been working towards institutional Athena SWAN recognition.
  • In 2017, LSE convened a self-assessment team to work towards the ECU’s Race Equality Charter Mark. The Race Equality Charter is focussed on improving the representation, progression and success of black and minority ethnic (BME) staff and students in Higher Education.
  • LSE is a Stonewall diversity champion and is part of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index.
  • LSE also works closely with AccessAble to develop online access guides to all the School’s buildings, and route maps around campus.
