The barriers women face in business — whether cultural, financial or personal — limit the opportunities and the potential of too many future leaders. The KS WELI was built to overcome these barriers and grow the number of women-owned and women-led businesses.

KS WELI was launched thanks to funding from founding company partner, Kendra Scott, LLC, and supporting partner, Dell Technologies. As the KS WELI strengthens and expands, additional philanthropic support will bolster our co-curricular and curricular programming – elevating UT Austin as the preeminent national model in women’s entrepreneurial leadership.

With your help and support from company partners and individuals who all care deeply about advancing opportunities for female leaders, we can strengthen the next generation of courageous, creative women who will change the world — in business and beyond.

Ways and Opportunities to support the KS WELI

  • Make an annual gift (range of levels to fit your business and budget) to support programming, course development, seed grants and more!
  • Create an endowment in the name of a woman who has made an impact in your life, to support in perpetuity our Female FoundHERS, our KS WELI Faculty, and the expansion of our efforts.
  • Donate your expertise and connect your network of powerful female leaders as mentors, advisors, and investors.
