uLektz Wall of Fame

An Initiative to Identify, Recognise & Award the contributors for Higher Education

Higher Education is the only industry where hope, in the form of knowledge, is cultivated and shared. This industry runs smoothly, thanks to the dedicated contributions of numerous researchers, scholars, professors, students, faculties and academicians in general. While we acknowledge these contributions and are grateful for them, there is something that needs to be said about Women’s contribution to this Industry.

Because, an Empowered Woman in the Education Field can fight poverty and inequality, promote sustainable growth, inspire innovative ideas, educate her community and lead her country towards a glorious future.

And it is these women we wish to recognise, celebrate and honour for their dedication and efforts in the Education Field through our Wall of Fame platform.

Over the past month,  we received numerous nominations and we also generated certain nominations through our Internal Team and all these entries were considered for this award. From these nominees, each influential in their own right, we have shortlisted 50 amongst them as India’s Top 50 Women Leaders in the Education Industry. 

These women have shown some exemplary service through performances within their roles that fostered sustained growth, created public awareness on existing issues, came up with solutions that were needed and lead their community through tough times, towards success. This award stands as a symbol through which we acknowledge their groundbreaking efforts, insights and guidance they have shown towards our society.

Hearty Congratulations to each of the Wall of Fame Award winners for India’s Top 50 Women Leaders in the Education Industry. By declaring the following women as one of India’s Top 50 Women Leaders in the Education Industry we acknowledge and honour the efforts that they have put towards their job and through this award, we appreciate their efforts. The Wall of Fame certificate for this award represents our respect and admiration and will serve as an ongoing reminder of their achievements.
