The mission of Texas Executive Women is to support programs that recognize, develop and fund the advancement of women and teenage girls in the community. The Women on the Move luncheon is TEW’s sole fundraising initiative for its mentorship and scholarship programs. Women on the Move was founded in 1985 when Robert Sakowitz, who felt strongly that the city’s businesswomen should be recognized, shared this vision with the Hobby family. Sakowitz and Hobby provided the resources to launch the program and insisted that the 10 Women on the Move each year are the best of the best in Houston, who in addition to professional achievement, exhibit the highest level of service to the Houston community. In 2015, TEW added the Rising Star honor to recognize a super star under the age of 30.
