The EDI blog aims to showcase the thoughts, ideas and research of LSE staff and students. We welcome contributions (which can be write-ups, photographs or videos) on issues related to equity, diversity and inclusion, with these terms understood in a broad sense.

To submit a blog post, please write to edi@lse.ac.uk briefly describing what you want to contribute. Once you’ve sent us an email, we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Comments are welcome from all users of the blog – whether from members of LSE or not. To leave a comment on the blog, simply enter your comment below the post.

All contributions are guided by our Contributions Policy, which is outlined below:

  • Editorial rights: Contributions to the blog will be published at the discretion of the blog editor(s). By contributing to the blog, you agree to the blog editor(s) making minor stylistic changes (e.g. to grammar, to spellings and for clarity) to your contribution, in accordance with the LSE Style Guide. The blog editor(s) will not make any major changes to the submission without the author’s permission.
