Federation of Houston Professional Women

FHPW unites women from diverse member organizations to enrich relationships and expand leadership, partnership, and educational opportunities.

An extension of business women's current member organizations, FHPW provides stewardship, mentorship, and partnerships in the Greater Houston and surrounding communities to connect and transform the networking experience by recognizing women of excellence and building pathways to help members achieve their aspirations.

Through its Endowment Fund the Federation has provided over $42,000 in educational scholarships at the C.T. Bauer College of Business, University of Houston. It is this giving back that helps to ensure there will be a next generation of Houston professional women.
