Executive Director of INIE Jessica Lowe-Minor is dedicated to helping these organizations thrive. A graduate of Florida State University with over ten years of experience in the nonprofit sector, Jessica began her career as a lobbyist for the National Organization for Women while receiving her graduate degree. “I hadn’t thought of myself as a lobbyist,” Jessica admitted. “In my mind, that involved men in suits and smoke-filled rooms.” Jessica soon found herself more invested than ever, as she took the Executive Director position at the League of Women Voters of Florida. “I quickly realized I enjoyed advocating for something I knew was going to make a difference,” she states.

As an academic, a businesswoman and a social entrepreneur, Jessica uses her passion and vision for sustainable nonprofits to propel INIE forward. With the rise of the millennial generation as young professionals, Jessica recognizes their ambition and seeks to elevate their roles in business. Not only does INIE recruit young people, the organization is adamant that its board of directors derives from a myriad of backgrounds and ages in order to reflect the area that they are serving. With now over 120 nonprofit members, including organizations such as Domi Education, United Way of the Big Bend and the Foundation for Leon County Schools, INIE has shown unparalleled growth. Jessica says, “Through strategic entrepreneurship, nonprofits can become more sustainable over time and less susceptible to the ebbs and flows of fundraising and grant cycles. Stability is key to a healthy nonprofit and a healthy economy.” For more information on INIE, visit online at theinstitutefornonprofits.org. WWMB • Women Who Mean Business | Fall/Winter 2016
