Fernando Oria


Co Founder and Head Designer at Mind The Gap - Inspire to Invent. Collective achievement and community development through STEAM education programs. Close the gaps in education in Mexico is the why.

Co-founder of Mind The Gap - Inspire to Invent and STEM for Kids® -México. We teach kids the skills required to solve the problems of the future. I am also Managing Director of Consulting at beWanted where we provide employer branding solutions for companies looking for help with their talent needs in a global scale. A Board Member at the Executive Committee of Conscious Capitalism Chapter in Mexico (, where my main role is to link up the organization with academic institutions in order to spread the word with future entrepreneurs and professionals. Member of the board of Fundación Mark, which creates fun spaces for children with cancer in public hospitals so they can be reminded they are, above all, kids with the right to play.

After a nine-year run in Management Consulting at Korn Ferry as Associate Principal, I transitioned into a management role in the social impact sector at Iluméxico, where my responsibilities as COO were to oversee field operations, the supply chain, and people operations. I also worked two years with the first low-cost carrier in Mexico and as an intern at UNICEF.

I enjoy working on personal side projects and want to get involved in more education initiatives. Husband, father, reader and mediocre amateur soccer player, I also enjoy running a marathon every now and then.
