In this enlightening program, author and renowned speaker Dr. Steve Robbins
uniquely challenges and motivates people through his stories, humor and extensive knowledge of the topics of diversity and inclusion. Dr. Robbins' unique concept of Unintentional Intolerance
has captured wide acclaim from numerous audiences and organizations across the country. Unintentional Intolerance
is the term Robbins has coined to explain the unconscious things well-meaning people do that exclude others.
The approach Robbins presents does NOT blame or point fingers. It challenges individuals and organizations to be more open-minded, more mindful and intentional about inclusion and more welcoming of the unique gifts, abilities and experiences people have to offer.
