Jennifer Arlem Molina is a multipotentialite creative soul who is passionate about women’s rights, accessible high quality education for all, and community development. The challenges she has faced and successfully defeated are the main reason why she dedicates so much of her time advocating for gender equality and women’s empowerment.

Jennifer has a B.A in Interdisciplinary Visual Arts from the University of Washington. Her work has been exhibited in the Pacific Northwest, the Midwest and Mexico.

She’s formerly the Economic Development Program Manager at Latino Community Fund of Washington State, where she created and implemented innovative strategies to empower small business owners; with particular attention on supporting women, immigrant and minority owned businesses. In addition to ensuring that Latino and business leaders of colors in King County were engaged with economic development resources; Jennifer was responsible for teaching women empowerment workshops which focused on labor ordinances, salary negotiation and personal development. She was also responsible for managing all events and partnerships for the Latinos in Tech and Hispanic Seafair programs.

She is currently the VP of Social Responsibility at ALPFA Seattle and part of the Leadership Team for Latinas Lean In Seattle Circle and F Bomb Breakfast Club.

She hopes to contribute to the work others are doing in the community by being a bridge between communities and information while using education as a tool for empowerment.
