Keynote Speaker

We are excited to have acclaimed speaker, Steve Pemberton, as the speaker at this year's Annual Benefit. Steve defied seemingly insurmountable odds to become a trail-blazing corporate executive, enlightened diversity leader, and visionary youth advocate. His best-selling memoir, A Chance in the World, recounts his triumphant life journey and drive to become a man of resilience, determination, and vision. Now a major motion picture, A Chance in the World further amplifies Steve's highly motivational messages: Believe in your dreams, rise above obstacles, create opportunities for others, and most of all, persevere.
