Event date: 
03/06/2023 - 7:00pm

Best-Selling Author, Philanthropist, Acclaimed Speaker, and Senior-Level Executive for the Likes of Monster.com, Walgreens Boots Alliance, and Workhuman. Steve Pemberton’s story is about defying seemingly insurmountable odds to become a trail-blazing corporate executive, enlightened diversity leader, visionary youth advocate, and acclaimed speaker. 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. In 2017 the major motion picture, A Chance in the World further amplified Steve’s highly motivational messages: Believe in your dreams, rise above obstacles, create opportunities for others, and most of all, persevere.

Steve has never forgotten the chances that bent the arc of his life. His commitment to others and his refusal to accept things as they are, have earned him national recognition, including the coveted Trumpet Award and the prestigious Horizon Award by the United States Congress.
