Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas – Fort Worth Chapter

History

The mission of the Fort Worth Chapter coincides with that of the state organization to “promote the advancement of women in public, corporate, and civic life.” Celebrating and improving the positive image of Hispanas is the purpose of HWNT. This is accomplished through programming and collaboration on issues including education, rights to vote, mentoring programs, and annual state conferences.
