Thank you to everyone who joined us in person or virtually for KS WELI’s first in person Women’s Summit on 2/24/2023!
Hosted in the original headquarters for the Texas Federation of Women’s Clubs – the KS WELI Women’s Summit 2023 was all about reigniting passion + motivation and rebuilding after a tough season. Owning “failure” and tough times as a part of the entrepreneurial process (and life!) and learning from it, moving through it, and coming out on the other side not just thriving, but flourishing and bringing up others with you.
Watch the replay if you missed out or want to relive the event!
We want the Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (KS WELI) to be shaped by you! Tell us what worked, what didn’t, and what you’re hoping to see next time around. The KS WELI is for you, and we want your voice to be heard. We appreciate your time and feedback to help us #empowerwomentolead and #encouragetheworldtofollow.
Deadline to Complete: Monday, May 15th @ 11:59 pm
