The Hispanic 100 is an organization of trailblazing Latina leaders in the Dallas/Fort Worth area whose contributions have shaped, influenced and transformed how Latinas are viewed in business, education, arts, health, politics and community leadership. The Hispanic 100 is a highly diverse network of Latinas with a 20-year history whose value proposition as a collective group is the strength of their experiences, their reach and their capacity to influence change. The organization is committed to increasing business development opportunities for Hispanic women-owned businesses and promoting Hispanic women leadership in the private and public sectors.
The Hispanic 100 began as the Hispanic 50 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 areas of employment, procurement and social issues. The organization changed its name to the Hispanic 100 in 2003 as its membership grew.
The Hispanic 100 established an endowment fund, called the Hispanic 100 Advised Fund, which supports local organizations whose mission is to empower, educate and support Latinas and our community.
