To inspire Latinas to maximize their strengths and potential, in order to become equal partners in an empowered world of equal opportunity with equal justice, recognition, respect and dignity.

An estimated 60.5% of Latinas will be part of the U.S. workforce in 2020, and we must prepare them to break through the glass ceiling in the private and public sectors. We remain steadfast in our mission – guiding Latinas towards excellence in leadership – and 100 Hispanic Women, Inc. has instituted programs to touch the lives of Latinas, some of which include:
Young Latinas Leadership Institute: an undergraduate mentoring and scholarship program
100 Hispanic Women Internship Program: for college students in good standing committed to public service
Bronx Global Learning Institute for Girls: a dual-language charter school in the South Bronx fostering academic excellence, multiculturalism, and biliteracy
This exciting event brings together key partners in the Latino community, and helps sustain the programs that are making a huge impact in the lives of Latinas.
Our most recent gala was held on June 11, 2012 at the 230 Fifth Penthouse in New York. This year, we celebrated our commitment to education and our 10th year collaboration with The City University of New York (CUNY).
We thank all of our sponsors and attendees for their continued support, commitment and generous contributions. We also thank our members, supporters, and friends who continuously help us make our work a reality.
