McGavick Conference Center
on the Clover Park Technical College campus
4500 Steilacoom Blvd SW, Lakewood WA

Hear from keynote speaker Steve Pemberton, Fortune 50 executive, best-selling author of "A Chance in the World," and diversity champion.  Steve is Senior Executive at Walgreens Boots Alliance, the first global pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise in the world. Prior to that he served as Chief Diversity Officer for Walgreens, becoming the first person to hold that position in the historic company’s 114 year history. He is widely considered a subject matter expert on matters of diversity and inclusion and its importance to the sustainability of organizations and the communities they serve. One of America’s most inspiring executives, he brings a deep personal understanding of human differences and the human experience to his position. Pemberton was a ward of the state for much of his childhood, an experience he chronicled in his 2012 best-selling memoir. His extraordinary life journey, featured in People Magazine, has been translated into multiple languages and continues to inspire audiences across the world; the movie adaption of his life is currently underway.

Learn more about Steve Pemberton.

 
We will also announce the recipients of this year's Neighborhood Grants, the LIVE UNITED Award winners and celebrate all of the good work being done in our community.
 
 
 
       DEADLINE IS April 13th.
