Felix has over 15 years experience of leadership in educational and non-profit organizations. As a seasoned director of educational programs, his experience ranges from creating scholarship programs for STEM students of color, to organizing volunteers nationwide, and building two educational organizations from the ground up. His passion to positively impact disadvantaged people of color through resource building and community empowerment derives from his upbringing in a low-income family and being the first in his family to graduate from college. Prior to #YesWeCode, Felix served as the Program Director for Genesys Works and the Director of Alumni Scholarships & Student Engagement at the University of California Alumni Association. Felix holds a BA in Sociology from UCLA. Although originally from Southern California; he, his wife and daughter proudly cheer for the Golden State Warriors.
"Diversity brings so much more to the table - and by focusing outside of the usual and rewarding all sorts of people in tech - we can only make it better. #YesWeCode is doing exactly that."
