During his conversation with the host, Tommie Edwards - CEO Tedbree, Yomi noted that one of the Initiative's primary goals is to train a minimum of 5000 black professionals in Data Science annually.

Tommie then inquired about the motivation for this goal in light of the enormous number involved.

As an accomplished data professional and holder of a First-class degree, Yomi understands the value of education and its numerous benefits.
