She earned her undergraduate degree in Insurance from the University of Lagos, Nigeria and started out her career in financial services before transitioning into Tech. This past summer, Teju worked with Deloitte as a technology consultant where she was able to combine her background in business and interest in technology to develop and implement digital transformation strategies for clients. Teju is a 2019 Grace Hopper Scholar and is very passionate about mentoring young women and girls hoping to transition into STEM fields. This led her to volunteer with AfroTech girls, a non-profit in Nigeria and she hopes to continue similar activities with our center. In her spare time Teju enjoys music, reading and sports.

Graduate Women & Technology is a team exclusive to graduate women with an interest in technology. Like our center, we exist to promote assistance and resources to encourage and empower graduate women working in and with technology. We offer opportunities for graduate students to promote their work and advance their skills. Graduate Women & Technology hosts events ranging from social gathering for casual conversation, to workshops and symposiums where graduates and professionals can present their own work. If you are a graduate student interested in technology at any level, join us!
