About Steve L. Robbins, PhD.
A powerful storyteller with a powerful story to tell, Steve L. Robbins, PhD, has an unmatched ability to inspire people even in the midst of disrupting and challenging the way they think about the world. Born in Vietnam, Robbins immigrated to the United States when he was five years old.  He and his mother faced many challenges as Vietnamese immigrants in a new land, during a time when there was much anti-war and anti-Vietnamese sentiment.

Working through and rising out of the challenges of poverty, discrimination and the tough streets of Los Angeles, Robbins now brings insightful perspectives on issues of leadership, inclusion and innovation, and the power of caring. 

Robbins has shared his concept of “Unintentional Intolerance” with numerous audiences and organizations across the United States. An approach that does not blame or point fingers, it challenges individuals and organizations to be more open-minded, mindful and intentional about inclusion and valuing people for their unique gifts, abilities and experiences.

Robbins earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in communication from Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan and his master's and doctorate degrees communication from Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan.  His background in communication, socio-psychology and cognitive neuroscience drives his work with individuals and organizations – the core of which is about understanding human behavior in a world full of human differences.
