Business & Finance Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation is featuring a presentation by Dr. Steve L. Robbins
Dr. Steve L. Robbins is a powerful storyteller with a powerful story to tell. Born in Vietnam, Dr. 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, Dr. Robbins now brings insightful perspectives on issues of leadership, inclusion & innovation, and the power of caring. His unique concept of “Unintentional Intolerance” has captured wide acclaim from 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. Drawing upon a compelling life journey, his talks are filled with intriguing stories, laugh-out-loud humor and a keen understanding of human behavior. Please join us for an inspiring event that will challenge the way you think.
