My name is Temidayo “Dayo” Akinjisola and I am a Senior at the University of Rhode Island. I am a Political Science and Supply Chain Management double major, and I have aspirations of one day becoming a Corporate Lawyer. Watching the DIVE RI conference grow from where it started to where it is now, it is apparent to me that this is more than just a conference. It’s a space for college students around the region to engage and be a part of critical conversations that make individuals more aware of their surroundings. Someone once said that “discussions themselves can be a revolutionary act when done correctly.” I strongly believe we are facilitating these discussions in the correct way.
