As if we needed another reason not to love Kendra Scott anymore! Austin-based designer and business owner Kendra Scott adds one new award for your CV. UT Austin students will soon be able to enroll in Women in Entrepreneurship, a three-credit course co-taught by newly appointed Professor Scott.
The course aims to provide women entrepreneurs with the tools and experiences to start and run their own business – including how to address and overcome the unique challenges women face in the business world.
Scott had previously partnered with UT to create the Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute.
“I am honored to join the university as a professor of practice and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work directly with this next generation of courageous leaders,” said Scott. “We have seen a real hunger for programs and courses that nurture and support aspiring women entrepreneurs, and I am committed to advancing our work with the WEL Institute by bringing my own experience and expertise to the class.”
According to UT, the company Kendra Scott has over 2,000 employees and more than 100 retail stores. This goes well beyond the first collection she created in a bedroom at home in 2002.
“On this 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the University of Texas at Austin is pushing the boundaries of women entrepreneurs in the world of startups, venture capital and corporate governance,” said Doug Dempster, dean of the College of Fine Arts. “And Kendra Scott goes first!”
Scott joins high profile professors like Oscar winner and Texas ex Matthew McConaughey, as well as bestselling author Brené Brown. McConaughey joined the faculty of UT’s Moody College of Communication in 2019 as a professor in the radio-television-film department. Brown, who gave the keynote speech at UT’s virtual spring 2020 start, is currently visiting professor at McCombs Business School teaching management and leadership.
