Women Driving Business
Dorothy Gibbons, Co-Founder, The Rose
Breast Cancer is 98% curable when detected early, but women without health insurance are less likely to get life-saving screenings. The Rose has become the leading nonprofit breast health organization in the state, serving over 40,000 women each year.
The Rose uses advanced digital technology to screen women for breast cancer through two diagnostic centers and a fleet of Mobile Mammography Vans.

The Mexican Institute of Greater Houston (MIGH) is a significant contributor to Community Development because we are increasing our student’s workforce skills so they can opt for better paid jobs. MIGH offers Basic Computer Technology Literacy Education for Adults. It is taught in English and Spanish and reaches parents through the schools attended by their children (K-12). We have been educating at risk LEPs about the benefits of using computers at home and at work, teaching them several software packages. Our programs primarily serve parents (80% woman/20% men) of school-aged children throughout the State of Texas. Carlos J. Lopez, President spoke about their Computer Literacy Courses for Adults.
