INSPIRING LATINAS SINCE 1995
Our vision is to inspire Latinas and maximize their strengths and potential to become equal partners in an empowered world of equal justice, recognition, respect, and dignity #100HispanicWomen.
In 1995, 14 Latina professionals, community, and business leaders founded the 100 Hispanic Women National, Inc. (100HW). They envisioned a non-profit organization dedicated to guiding Latinas towards excellence in leadership by fostering educational enrichment and creating opportunities to promote our personal and professional advancement.
