Openly gay VP of Finance & Strategy at Corktown Health Center Mike Flores has been recognized by Business Equality Pride Magazine for his contributions to the LGBTQ community. He was featured on the 40 LGBTQ Leaders Under 40 list and is part of the Class of 2021, which "reflects the best and brightest leaders from the US and Canada, California to New York, Texas to Montréal and all stops between."
"His success as president of the board [of Affirmations LGBTQ Center] helped him to realize he could truly be successful using his private sector business expertise to help make nonprofit organizations stronger and economically viable. Flores quickly found his calling, with the support of his partner, Josh he followed his heart to professionally immerse himself in the world of LGBTQ+ nonprofits," wrote BEQ. "He began as Vice President of Special Projects in 2019 and was soon promoted to Vice President of Finance & Strategy in June 2020. When the novel coronavirus pandemic hit, Flores was able to demonstrate his strong leadership skills by managing several patient continuity of care projects including heading up a technology implementation plan. With the success of the technology plan, he was ready for the promotion."
