Elizabeth Power Robison

Elizabeth Power Robison is Vice President at the Milken Institute, working directly with Chairman Mike Milken to develop a new project in Washington, DC. Born in Boston to a Jewish mother and an Irish Catholic father who served in the U.S. Army 530th Engineer Panel Bridge Company, Elizabeth was raised on an apple orchard in Vermont and became a Bat Mitzvah with a borrowed Torah and a voting booth as the ark. A year living in Israel as a high school exchange student and an essential scholarship led her to attend Brandeis University where she was elected as the student representative on the Board of Trustees. After graduation, Elizabeth postponed plans to attend law school to work instead for the Salzburg Global Seminar, a nonprofit organization in Austria challenging current and future world leaders to shape a better world. There she helped foster networks for creative, just, and sustainable change. She later earned her MBA at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business, and established a successful career raising private gifts in higher education. In memory of her brother, an award-winning journalist who died tragically in 2014 while on assignment in Uganda, Elizabeth established the Matthew Power Literary Reporting Award at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute with support from more than 600 individuals and organizations who were touched by Matt’s life and work. She joined the Milken Institute in January 2018, where she and her colleagues work to advance collaborative solutions that widen access to capital, create jobs, and improve health leading to stable economic growth and a strong society. Elizabeth lives in Whittier, California, with her husband and their eight year old daughter.
