Oscar Gomez has a degree in International Studies from Pepperdine University and a Healthcare Executive certification from the UCLA Anderson School of Management. He has 25 years of experience in community/public health — 16 of those years as CEO of a national healthcare consulting firm. In early 2018, Gomez left that role to discover his next career passion and purpose. He circled back to his lifelong experience with equity, diversity, and inclusion and launched SoJoGo — the three syllables are a nod to his parents Socorro y Jose Gomez. In 2019, Gomez was featured in Conscious Company's list of 20 Game-Changing Founders of Color.
