In 2017, Oluwatoyin co-founded TechInPink, an organization that was dedicated to helping women embrace a career in tech through mentorship, university boot camps and regular blogposts for newbies.
She was also the co-organizer of the Women in Machine Learning and Data Science, (WiMLDS) Lagos, Nigeria Chapter where she organized various workshops to help more women get into the field of AI. Her involvement with WiMLDS led to the expansion of the organization and the creation of other chapters in Nigeria.

Her fundamental core passion does not stop at the idea of women in tech, it dives deeper to advocating excellence and a strong distaste for mediocrity, thereby propelling more women into long term leadership positions.
Her favourite quote is: “Let your skills speak louder than your gender”.
