robin makes an impact

Scholars and experts from across academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector highly recommend Robin A. Wright as a thought-provoking presenter, motivational speaker, and a true champion for change. Here are just a few of the partners who enjoy working with Robin.

"Robin is a dynamic speaker who has a gift for connecting with others.  Robin presented at our all-staff meeting and staff raved about how wonderful and compelling she was.  Her stories were personal and advice authentic. It was a pleasure having her join us and we look forward to working with her in the future!"

Elizabeth Miller

Assistant Director, Office of the Ohio Public Defender

"I had the pleasure of participating in an implicit bias training Robin Wright led in 2016 with the Center for the Study of Social Policy. As an organization that largely works from an equity frame, our expectations for training and trainers is high. Robin exceeded our expectations with her knowledge and gift as a public speaker. During the training, she pushed participants to gain new knowledge, while also patiently responding to questions and feedback. Overall, Robin is an asset to the field and a true champion for justice."

Tashira Halyard

Senior Policy Analyst, Center for the Student of Social Policy

"Robin is an outstanding speaker and educator. At my previous institution [Bexley Public Library], she gave an implicit bias workshop at staff development day in 2016 and was so fantastic that we invited her back to do a public presentation for the community. She is one of the few speakers whom I have gone out of my way to share with colleagues. She is funny, engaging, and has the rare ability to push people to think about difficult topics without creating defensiveness. The staff were universally impressed by her presentation, and feedback from the public was equally positive. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

Dr. Rachel Rubin

Director of Library and Information Services, Capital University

“Robin presented at our Diversity and Inclusion conference that had over 150 people in attendance that included business and community leaders, hospital and social service practitioners and educators and students. Robin demonstrated an extremely high level of engagement and participation while simultaneously maintaining a professional and educational presentation. Robin is a highly competent thought leader that uses data to drive her discussion and real-life examples to connect with a very broad audience. Robin’s presentation is well organized and relevant for today’s society. After her presentation, several of my colleagues asked for her information to utilize her services and I have also continued to utilize and recommend her services.”

Frank Whitfield

CEO of Lorain County (OH) Urban League

Robin is a gifted, magnetic speaker. Her presentation was the highlight of our conference, and attendees reported that they found the presentation both eye-opening and inspiring.”

Paul Rose

Professor, Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University

Robin is a brilliant speaker and thinker, an exquisite writer, an astute listener, a careful and critical researcher, a skillful synthesizer of information, a diligent professional, an exceptionally collegial scholar, and an extraordinarily gracious human being. She has always emphasized the importance of justice and building the capacity of disadvantaged populations to be able to self-advocate on the issues that impact their lives. She has a multitude of experience working in disadvantaged communities, touching vulnerable populations of color in fields ranging from trauma informed lens to community change work, to training hundreds of CSSP staff and partners on implicit bias, institutional racism and systemic disadvantage.”
