Ana Cortez

As Program Associate with the Diversity-TECH Internship Program and as a first-generation Mexican-American, Ana understands how essential diversity and inclusivity are in education and the workplace.

Born and raised in Southern California, Ana holds a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language and Literature from the University of California, Davis. She spent the last five years at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House, working behind the scenes in project and facilities management, supporting their mission of comfort and care to families with critically-ill children.
