Robin L. Owens, Ph.D. is a college professor and who spends her time outside of the classroom fulfilling her mission to support high-achieving women leaders.
She describes high-achieving women leaders this way. “They are women who are ambitious, goal-oriented, professional, in official leadership roles or unofficial leadership roles. They are often highly responsible at work and at home… and are doing all the things. They are the ones that are always supporting others. They rarely get support because others think they don’t need it.”
In service to her mission to support high-achieving women leaders--
Robin is the host of the popular podcast “Leadership Purpose with Dr. Robin,” creator of the Purpose-Based, Decision-Making System, founder of MASTERFUL Course Creations, LLC, and author of two upcoming books – (1) “Making Purpose-Based Decisions: An Inspirational Guide to More Meaning and Purpose in Your Business or Career”-- and (2) “My Faith in the Constitution is Whole: Barbara Jordan and the Politics of Scripture” which is about the unique way Barbara Jordan lived out her leadership purpose.
Robin has over 20 years of experience in researching, teaching and studying meaning and purpose in the lives and work of women leaders. She combines her experience in business, social work and higher education to bring a powerful and personable perspective to her mission of empowering high-achieving women leaders.
More About Robin
Since she was about 6 years old Robin has been interested in the big question of life. Often she wandered off to a quiet place… just to think… and ponder about the meaning of life.
Over time her early childhood curiosity followed her well into adulthood. That led her to dedicate years of research, study, and writing to pursue questions of meaning through the academic study of religion. As a result of her pursuit she received a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Claremont Graduate University.
In turn, that led her to become a tenured professor in the Religious Studies Department at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles. Where she teaches high achieving, aspiring women leaders to pursue their own questions of meaning and purpose.
