Equality and diversity
LSE is committed to improving equality and diversity across the school and is currently working towards the ECU’s Race Equality Charter Mark and Athena Swan Charter. The former aimed to improve the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education. The Athena Swan Charter was expanded in 2015 to recognise work undertaken to address gender equality in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law. The School is applying for recognition from the charter in 2016.
The Department of Management at LSE takes an active role in supporting this vision with the newly created Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, participating in staff network groups, supporting academics who research in this area and encouraging related teaching, such as the 2016 CEMS Block Seminar on Gender and Diversity Management.
LSE is also proud to be a part of the Two Ticks Scheme – demonstrating the School’s commitment to employing and retaining disabled staff.

Here's what staff had to say about working at the LSE Department of Management:
One of the best aspects of my job is being able to assist faculty in communicating their research to the wider world. It's fascinating learning about colleagues' research and I enjoy the creativity of deciding how best the Department can provide communication support.
Lucy Porter, Communications and Events Manager
The Department of Management is a really progressive and creative environment. I'm always learning something new and meeting new people and really feel I'm encouraged to express myself. I also appreciate the regular opportunities for professional development and enjoy working with such a forward-thinking team who aren't afraid to try something new.
Faisal Khan, Digital Marketing Officer
I started as Office Coordinator in the Department before taking on the role of Programme Administrator after 9 months. In the past year I've also added another Programme, so I am quickly gaining more responsibility within the Department. There is constant opportunity to review your progress and discuss your career aspirations so hopefully it won't be too long until I progress further!
