About Us

The Hispanic 50 was organized in 1996 when local Latina leaders Delia Reyes, Bertha Outler, and Patricia Asip recognized the need for Hispanic women leaders in the Dallas area to unite and advance Latina participation in the business arena. The organization changed its name to Hispanic 100 in 2003 as its membership grew.


The Hispanic 100 is a network of Dallas area Hispanic women leaders engaged to help increase business development opportunities for Hispanic women-owned businesses and works to promote Hispanic women leadership in the private and public sectors. 

The Hispanic 100 membership consists of Latina women in Corporate positions (27%); Business Owners (27%); Public Office/Non-profit Organizations (18%); Lawyers (14%); Education (11%); Medical (2%) and Real Estate (1%).


Most recently, The Hispanic 100 has established an endowment fund that is used to support Latina educational initiatives.  The Hispanic 100 activities have included programs on issues affecting our membership, including private consultations with corporate leaders enlisting their support regarding our concerns and strategic goals.
