About the Author
A powerful storyteller with a powerful story to tell, Dr. Steve L. Robbins has an uncanny ability to inspire people even in the midst of disrupting and challenging the way they think about the world. Born in Vietnam, Dr. Robbins immigrated with his mother to the United States where they faced many challenges 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, Dr. Robbins now brings insightful perspectives on issues of inclusion & innovation, leadership, and the power of caring.
When Steve Long-Nguyen Robbins was growing up, his mother routinely told him, “Long, you walk on a path cleared by others, so it is your responsibility to clear the path for others.” Her insightful guidance and self-sacrificing example are the forces that drive Robbins’s corporate work around diversity and inclusion today.
