Carlisha Robinson


Carlisha Brown Robinson has more than 25 years of experience in the high-tech computer software industry, lending her talents to large corporates from IBM to BMC Software as well as to startups like Innography and CPA Global.

Bringing to market innovative software products is what Carlisha does, but it is not who she is. Born in Grambling, Louisiana on the heels of the Civil Rights movement, feeling all the love a large family in a small historically Black community defines her to her core. Even after moving west and spending several years in Los Angeles area school systems and being “bused” to the “better schools” in the valley, her true scholarly and life educational experiences are rooted in the south. After completing high school at Grambling High Laboratory School and graduating with a double-major in Computer Science and Mathematics in 1991 from the world-renowned Grambling State University, Carlisha chose Austin as her professional and personal home.

She is a wife and mother of two – a Black teenage girl and boy – and an advocate for education and justice here in the eclectic, high-tech, collegiate, and very political capital city. She actively serves the community through a life membership in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc where she chairs annual programs for scholarship and the educational trust and as a charter board member of the Excellence and Advancement Foundation, focused on prevention and intervention programs to break the school to prison pipeline.
