Alicia Robinson

women girls charity nonprofit Akron Ohio

Founder and Executive Director

Dream-Believe-Achieve isn't just Limitless Ambition’s motto, it's the mindset that fuels Executive Director, Alicia Robinson. Alicia began with a dream of empowering a generation of young women that could one day change the world. She believed in this dream so much that she gave up a life of comfortable security to pursue her passion and truly impact the lives of thousands.


In only three years, Alicia took the seed of an idea and grew it into a fully functioning nonprofit organization that has already begun to change the way young women dream of their future. She personally has taken a path to prove that you can overcome pain to pursue passion. Alicia has her Master’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Kent State University with a concentration in positive youth development and nonprofit studies. Her areas of research are African American women, their levels of motivation, and the contextual influences that make them academically successful. 

Additionally, Alicia serves as the Associate Director for Research and Evaluation at the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women at Case Western Reserve University. In this role, she oversees the center’s research initiatives, women’s leadership summits, and the evaluation of the center's programs for continuous improvement. Alicia also serves on the Greater Akron Chamber Women’s Leadership Council and the Akron Urban League Young Professionals Leadership Team.


Alicia's work has not gone unnoticed. She has won various awards including the 2019 Akron Women's Network Emerging Leader Award, the 2019 Crain's Cleveland Notable Women in Entrepreneurship Award, and the 2017 Greater Akron Chamber 30 for the Future Award. She was also the recent recipient of the 2020 Athena Young Professional Award! She continues to be a living example that no vision is too small or impossible when you dream, believe, and achieve without limits!
