The Think Equal System Change
Leslee Udwin (UK)
Leslee is the founder and CEO of Think Equal. She was voted by the NY Times as the No 2 Most Impactful Women of 2015, second to Hilary Clinton. In the same year, she was awarded the prestigious Swedish Anna Lindh Human Rights Prize, previously won by Madeleine Albright.
She was also named Safe's Global Hero of 2015, and a Global Thinker by Foreign Policy. In 2019, she received the Activism in Arts and Education award from the UN Women for Peace Association, UN Association USA’s Global Citizen of 2019, and the Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award.
Founded in 2016, Think Equal is the world's first holistic Social and Emotional Learning programme comprising best practice, quality education, and tangible tools which achieve the outcomes of inclusion, equality, and wellbeing. With a focus in most educational systems on numeracy and literacy, there is a missing third dimension: social and emotional learning. The Think Equal programmes seek to close this gap.
Think Equal has reached 170 000+ children in 20 countries across 6 continents. Major global partnerships include UNICEF, UNESCO, the Yale Centre for Emotional Intelligence, Columbia University's Earth Institute, and Pope Francis' Global Compact for Education.
