Enterprising Latinas, Inc. (ELI), a nonprofit organization led by women of color, announced that it received a grant from Spectrum Digital Education to establish a new computer lab to boost people’s digital skills, with a focus on women.  

ELI, founded in 2009 and operating since 2014, has been a lending partner of the Adrian Dominican Sisters’ community investing fund since 2023. Its focus is to create pathways to prosperity for women and low- to moderate-income families in the Wimauma, Florida, community and throughout Tampa Bay. 

ELI’s enduring commitment to empowering women by equipping them with new skills is well aligned with the Adrian Dominican Congregation’s 2022 Enactment on Women, to “strive to attain gender equality and women’s full and equal participation and decision making in Church and society.”
