Often called a "diversity expert," Steve readily admits that he doesn't know if that's the right title. Steve considers himself more a life-long student of human behavior. For him, issues of inclusion and diversity are fundamentally issues of human behavior in a world filled with human differences.
His life experiences and academic background in communication science, social psychology and cognitive neuroscience create the foundation from which he crafts his talks and workshops. That science-based foundation guides his work and allows him multiple perspectives that he brings to bear on issues of inclusion, belonging and diversity.
An inspirational speaker, he engages and captivates audiences all over the world (in-person and virtually) with his compelling stories and keen insight into human behavior. His presentation style is often described as a mix of Bill Nye the Science Guy, Saturday Night Live and The Big Bang Theory.
In a collaboration with S2S Studios, S.L. Robbins & Associates has created multiple video series to jumpstart your organization's inclusion and diversity training.
