In this session we will explore our alumni’s experiences of integrating a gender equality perspective into their career and activities and how they apply the knowledge and expertise they gained at LSE Gender.

This event is part of a series of Alumni Lunches to help support and develop our students’ career. Organised around specific themes (gender mainstreaming, gender campaigning, not-for-profit, gender and media, etc.), each lunch provides an opportunity for students to engage with alumni already established in the field.


Each event will include a short introduction by 3-4 panellists (both alumni and non-alumni) and a Q&A followed by an informal networking lunch to enable current students and LSE Gender Alumni to connect and build relationships.
