I’m Alicia Robinson, Founder at EdPlus Consulting.

Once upon a time I…

  • Was the Chief Talent Officer at DC Prep, a charter management organization for students in preschool-8th grade ranked for multiple consecutive years as the highest performing CMO in Washington, DC.
  • Was a teacher in DC public schools - first in DCPS as part of the inaugural class of DC Teaching Fellows, and then as a member of the founding faculty of DC Prep.
  • Led education and recruitment initiatives at the Washington Scholarship Fund and New Leaders for New Schools. I hustle to make magic happen!
  • Made tons of connections as an event planner and publicist. I can manage like a boss!

Since 2013 I've helped connect mission-driven individuals with education and social sector organizations. It's given me the opportunity to see firsthand what's working and what's broken about every aspect of the talent management cycle. Now I'm using all the wisdom I've collected to help organizations put their equity ideals into action. This work isn't just the right thing to do; it's the only way to justice and liberation.

We challenge ourselves and our clients to imagine a world where people of the global majority are celebrated and power and privilege no longer dictate access, opportunity, and ability to thrive.
