LSE Event: Understand Today, Shape Tomorrow

LSE is delighted to welcome back to campus alumna Ruth Porat (MSc Industrial Relations 1981), Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Alphabet and Google and journalist, television presenter and LSE alumnus Martin Lewis (BSc Government and Law 1994), – founder of Money Saving Expert and The Money & Mental Health Policy Institute, to take part in the launch of LSE 2030.

LSE Director, Minouche Shafik (MSc Economics 1986) and Ruth will take part in a fireside chat about the role of LSE and how it can shape the world in turbulent times of economic uncertainty and social transformations. Their discussion will also touch on the importance of diversity, lifelong learning and Ruth’s own career path from her time as an MSc student at LSE, to her current leadership role.

Following this Minouche will be in conversation with Martin where they discuss his time at LSE (where he was elected General Secretary of the Students’ Union) and his ongoing relationship with the School (he serves as a Governor) and the impact that has had on his hugely successful career in a number of different industries.
