Logic.Wiki is thrilled to announce that the Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (KS WELI) at The University of Texas at Austin will announce two awards for World Logic Day hosted in Austin, TX, on January 12th at the Long Center for the Performing Arts. With a gender-smart and intergenerational approach Lesley Robinson, Founding Director of KS WELI will serve alongside a UT Austin undergraduate student to select the awardees. Both awards will honor work in alignment with the United Nations SDG 5, gender equality and women empowerment.
The first award will be given alongside the World Logic Day 2023 content competition published on Logic.Wiki. Any content created around gender equality and women empowerment prior to the December 20th deadline will be considered. You can apply as a content partner for the award here and access the content build instructional guide here.
The second award will be announced in person at the live event to honor an individual for their work around UN SDG 5. This award will support the mission of KS WELI to “empower women to lead and encourage the world to follow.”
The mission of the Kendra Scott Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (KS WELI) at The University of Texas at Austin is to strengthen the next generation of courageous, creative women leaders who will change the world — in business and beyond. We create space and resources for creatives, leaders, and founders to become a community of empowered and equipped visionaries that embrace entrepreneurial leadership from a woman's perspective.
