HWNT History

Hispanic groups from around the state to create an organization that would address  issues unique to Hispanas. A commitment  to remain united, address common issues  and promote Hispanic Women was a  major concern then and continues now. The result was the 1987 conference in  Dallas at which 200 women from every  geographic area of Texas, with diverse  backgrounds and occupations, discussed  areas of concern to women and Latinos.  Collaboration is the key to our success.  Since its inception, HWNT members have  come together to sponsor programs  designed to cultivate the social, cultural,  legal and educational interests of Hispanic  women. HWNT has sponsored and  supported such activities as  educational/mentoring programs;  Women's Rights to Vote Celebration,  Hispanic Summit and Emerging Leaders  Conference, HWNT's State Conference,  and inter-generational programs and  achievement awards and ceremonies. We  believe that by women coming together in  a spirit of collaboration, we can make a difference!
