The Network of Executive Women (NEW) Cincinnati, a non-profit organization focused on advancing women, growing business and transforming the workplace through the power of community, is commemorating its 10th anniversary in 2018. 


Dr. Robbins has inspired, educated and prepared leaders and executives for the exciting challenges of dynamic and diverse environments at top companies including Disney, Walmart, Coca-Cola, Pixar, NASA, Caterpillar, Boeing, Dow Chemical, Michelin, Toyota and Exxon Mobil. 

Dr. Robbins' unique, science-based approach to inclusion and diversity has captured wide acclaim from numerous audiences and organizations across the United States.

It uses neuroscience and the science of human behavior to encourage individuals and organizations to be more open-minded, mindful and intentional about inclusion and valuing people for their unique gifts, abilities and experiences. 

Dr. Robbins earned an undergraduate degree in Communication from Calvin College, and his masters and doctorate in Communication Science from Michigan State University. 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.
