"We really appreciate [Adeola] and Avant-Garde for doing this and bringing members of the diverse community into Cornell Tech. As many of you know, the tech community right now is suffering from a lack of diversity particularly in Silicon Valley. We are trying to figure out how you get more people of color in tech. I would say that in New York City, we’re doing a much better job at that. With groups like Avant-Garde taking leadership and making sure we have representation is really huge. It is a huge benefit to us at Cornell tech.”  Aaron Holiday, Cornell Tech

“I have attended many leadership events and heard many keynote speakers. Adeola’s charismatic energy pulls you in and leaves you feeling energized and empowered. Adeola spoke from an authentic place; the transparency she shared about her own college experiences reflected the truth about being a college student today that I could genuinely relate to. She offered useful information pertaining to resources that could assist us post-graduation. I am certain that all of the young ladies who attended the Berkeley LeadHERship Brunch will incorporate her lessons into their life.”  Lakeyia Dickerson, Berkeley College Student


“I recommend Adeola Adejobi, Esq. without reservation or hesitation. She engages her audience with an inspiring message, infectious laugh and an invitation for us all to live our best lives. Students and staff alike were impressed by her resume but even more affected by her character! Overall, Adeola is an amazing individual and a phenomenal speaker and facilitator for any leadership events.” LaTia Sinclair


Kudos to Avant Garde Network, this was a wonderful event. Thank you to Ms. Adeola for doing a fabulous job facilitating this event. I am spreading the word about The Avant-Garde Network to every young professional of color to support you. God bless! - V. Sparks
