LSE POWER have organised two exciting events for LSE staff – a workshop on professional networking skills by Sue Tonks on 5 June and a social media workshop by Amy Mollett and Sonja Grussendorf on 10 June. Book soon – places are limited!
LSE accepted women students from its earliest days. For Women’s History Month we take a look at the women who stood at the front of the classroom during the early years of the School.
Following on from our discussion last term where we explored the lived experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) academic and professional services staff in Higher Education, the second part of our conversation series will focus on the discourses of identity related to the career trajectories of BME academics in the UK. The session will take place on Monday 16 March, 12.30pm.
March is Women’s History Month. Let’s take this opportunity to find out more about Beatrice Webb – the only woman among the four co-founders of LSE.
Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender History Month takes place across the UK every year in February. It celebrates the lives and achievements of the LGBT community. LSE Spectrum, the LSE network for LGBT staff, has some events taking place later this month.
A wonderful write up on the history of Spectrum – the LGBT+ staff network at LSE – by Spectrum’s current chair, James Deeley, and one of the founding members, Gillian Urquhart.
Arthur Lewis was the first black academic at LSE. At a time when UK higher education is starting to think about the lack of black people in academia, Sue Donnelly looks back at Arthur Lewis’ history and legacy.
The first of a three part conversation series on the lived experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) academic and professional services staff will take place on Monday 8 December, 12.30-2pm.
Want to learn more about equality and diversity and what it means in the workplace? There’s a range of equality and diversity sessions coming up for LSE staff in the next few weeks – make sure you book your place!
