Ayo was an excellent speaker for DVERSTY’s International Engineering series, we were humbled to have her. She represented her experiences as a Chartered Civil Engineer and Councillor extremely well. Delivering her presentation so eloquently, Ayo gave our guests an insight into the DNA of Civil Engineering. We’d like to thank Ayo for encouraging everybody to use their voice to challenge injustices seen in their environment.

Very interesting – such a positive force of nature. People often say that change happens because people ‘stand on the shoulders of giants’. Today, I think we’ve all just met a giant!

On the International Day of Women and Girls in STEM, Ayo sat on the We Rise Initiative’s first clubhouse panel on ‘Feminine Traits fitting into Women in STEM’. She was a wealth of knowledge and provided a great insight into her multifaceted career in STEM and politics. She inspired both younger and older women to break glass ceilings and pursue their dreams regardless of opinions. A truly phenomenal speaker.
