Oscar C. Gomez

Founder and Principal

Oscar’s personal, academic, and professional backgrounds have always found him immersed in issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion. He has a degree in International Studies from Pepperdine University and a Healthcare Executive certification from the UCLA Anderson School of Business. He has over 25 years of experience in community, public, and population health - 16 of those years as the CEO of a national not-for profit healthcare capacity building organization. In early 2018, Oscar set out to discover his next professional passion and purpose. After a period of reflection and self-inventory, he circled back to his commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion and launched SoJoGo in September 2018.

Oscar was recently included in Conscious Company Magazine’s list of “20 Game Changing Founders of Color” and is featured in their April 2019 issue.
