About Ruben Flores


Ruben is a co-founder of NYC Medics, an international non-governmental organization delivering medical care in the aftermath of natural disasters worldwide.  He has worked in Latin America, Africa, and Asia with the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and other humanitarian organizations.

As a humanitarian, he negotiated access to emergency healthcare projects in conflict zones and natural disasters around the world. After concluding that women are the most critical and least represented voice in determining the future of our world, he left his former career to devote himself to the cause of women's empowerment.

In 2014, Ruben Flores and Kasia Urbaniak founded The Academy.

In addition to his background in negotiation, he has spent over a decade studying women, men, and everything that could possibly go wrong between them.
