Our Story


Murray Hill Institute was founded in New York City in 2000 by a group of professional women committed to helping women integrate ethical standards into their personal and professional lives. The Institute affirms women in the unique role they play in promoting a more just and harmonious workplace. Over the years, the Institute has held several conferences with an emphasis on the role and impact of women in leadership, the media, influencing corporate culture, and balancing commitments.


In 2010 Murray Hill Institute expanded its operations to Houston, TX with the establishment of Murray Hill Institute-TX. Building on its established 10-year foundation, MHI-TX continues its mission of transforming culture in the greater Houston area. 


  • Conversations with Women Leaders seminar series provides young professionals the opportunity to learn from women leaders how to navigate through the challenges they encounter in the workplace.

  • Women’s Business Ethics Forum offers executive women the opportunity to come together to explore business challenges and decisions that influence company culture.

  • MHI-Medical seminars support women in healthcare professions and promote the value and respect of human life in all its stages.

  • Spectrum provides young professional women the opportunity to explore cultural topics and a venue to connect with others.

  • Leadership conferences cover topics relevant to women in the workplace.

The programs sponsored by the Institute are inspired by the thought and work of Saint Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei, and the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Murray Hill Institute-TX is a non-profit organization.  Its programs are open to individuals of all races, creeds and ethnic backgrounds.
