In 1986, Latina visionaries from across Texas recognized the need for a statewide Latina-based leadership organization. HWNT became a state-wide organization with headquarters located in Austin, Texas, made up of 7 chapters across the state of Texas: Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth,  San Antonio, Austin, and the Rio Grande Valley. Our members are from diverse backgrounds, each committed to promoting Hispanic women's participation in public, corporate and civic arenas.  Together we seek to celebrate the positive image and values of the Hispanic culture. 

HWNT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and has become Texas's premier Hispanic women's organization. Collaboration is fundamental to our success.

For more information on partnering with HWNT, contact our State Representative Martina Treviño.
