About Ruben Flores

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

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

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 career as a humanitarian to devote himself to the cause of women's empowerment.

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