Phillip Loya

Recruitment Manager, Fellows Program

Phillip comes to CODE2040 from UC Berkeley’s Incentive Awards Program, the largest privately funded recruitment, retention, scholarship, and degree completion program in the UC System. He conducted outreach and recruitment to primarily low-income, first-generation, underrepresented students at various high schools throughout California.

Growing up in Boyle Heights in East Los Angeles, Phillip has experienced the inequities within various underrepresented communities and has dedicated his life to helping those who need it most. Phillip was the first in his family to attend college, graduating from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Political Science. He is excited to continue his work at CODE2040 by helping Black and Latino/a students find success in the tech industry!

Outside of work, Phillip enjoys hiking, running, and driving on long road trips.
