Hispanic Women’s Corporation

Founded in 1981 to address the unique social concerns, cultural challenges and opportunities for
Latina women requiring exploration.

The Hispanic Women’s Corporation (HWC) was founded in 1981 as a result of a series of meetings among the founding Latina women whose shared experiences sparked recognition that Latinos have unique social concerns, cultural challenges and opportunities requiring exploration. Their diverse backgrounds in corporations, government and educational institutions led to the establishment of the HWC Professional Development & Leadership Institute for women and students.

HWC has now become a national force drawing over 2,000 attendees to the Professional and Youth Leadership Institutes. Continuing our HWC Youth Leadership Institute is imperative as we focus on the future of Latino students annually in their junior high and high school years for higher education, academic preparation, and career initiatives.

HWC is a nationally recognized 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation and a model organization, known for being a proactive leader in the development of Hispanic women.

HWC empowers Hispanic women through its commitment to the culture by promoting education, community involvement, and professional advancement and leadership development for the improvement of our cultural quality of life.

HWC will be the primary conduit of information and opportunities to benefit the community and instill lasting results toward our future.
