Toshe Ayo-Ariyo

Toshe is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and a former Finance & Strategy Analyst at The Walt Disney Company. She earned a certificate in data science and analytics from the University of Southern California (USC) Viterbi School of Engineering. Through her professional roles and participation in USC’s data analytics program, her skills include finance, business strategy, data science/analytics and front-end web development. She identifies with several marginalized groups (immigrants, POC, women, first-generation college students, people with disabilities), and knows firsthand how challenging it can be to navigate corporate spaces with all of those identities. She has experienced the isolation and career hindrances that come as a result of a lack of diversity in the workplace, and because of this, believes that increasing the diversity and representation of marginalized groups is a powerful solution. She is passionate about creating technology-driven and research-based solutions that will increase the corporate representation of historically excluded individuals across business units, functions and rank, while they thrive in those spaces, and completely redefine workplace norms.
