Hispanic Women in Leadership
In 1988, the Hispanic Women in Leadership (HWIL) was chartered in Houston, Texas, by 20 pioneering Latinas, after a successful Hispanic Women’s Leadership Conference. Hence, HWIL was established as a 501(C) (3) service organization with more than 400 members committed to advocating for Hispanic women’s issues and to enhance the quality of life for Latinos. Through our annual events, community projects, networking meetings, and workshops, HWIL unites Latinas and community for educational programs, leadership and professional development and entrepreneurship skills training. We provide college scholarships and mentorship awards to women in transition, and offer mentorship for aspiring women. HWIL integrates social media with a website for member communications, which links to HWIL’s sponsors and hosts an events calendar, community news, and features success stories along with employment and business opportunities and topics on health, fitness, and beauty; business and professional development; and, civic engagement promoting Latinas and the Hispanic culture.
