Who we are

The Top Female Leadership Organization in Houston

Here at the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce, we pride ourselves on being a women-led organization in Houston that helps to bring up the next generation of leaders and successful business professionals.

2024 High School Scholarship Application

“Becoming involved in the GHWCC has been one of the best professional development decisions I have made in my career. It provides the best opportunities for meeting influential business people, many of whom are women. GHWCC is all about women helping women succeed in business and life. Because of GHWCC, I have increased business referrals and have more wonderful friends.”

GHWCC members see many advantages when they join up. We have incredible events, speaking engagements, networking sessions and much more. We give you the opportunity to put yourself into the fray of the local business scene with the top Houston women’s networking group, and that gives you a chance to make connections and learn from — or teach — others along the way.  We believe in this community, and the core of our mission is bringing people together. As we do that, we help our members:

  • Make valuable connections
  • Build their own confidence
  • Increase their bottom line
  • Experience crucial life changes
  • Increase access to capital
  • Expand their horizons
  • Advance in their own companies
  • Take a more active role in the development of their own careers

Join the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce today and receive invitations to all the exclusive Chamber events.

Many people just wait it out in their careers, hoping that the success they want will eventually find them. We do not believe that this is enough for either men or women in Houston. We know that you need to actively pursue your goals and work alongside those who can help you get there. As a successful female leadership organization in Houston with a continually growing membership, we make that possible in a new way.

We are trailblazers in this area, and we’re very confident in our ability to help you reach new heights. We have won a Kathryn Stream Award, a Diversity Award and many other honors, such as recognition as Women in the Fast Lane of STEAM. We are passionate about being a women-led organization in Houston that gives women every possible opportunity for success.
