Description
A featured speaker at IASB’s 2018 Equity Event, Steve Pemberton’s quest for his identity recounts his triumphant life journey of courage and resilience.
 
Taken from his mother at age three, Steve lives a terrifying existence. Caught in the clutches of a cruel foster family and subjected to constant abuse, Steve finds his only refuge in a box of books given to him by a kind stranger. In these books, he discovers new worlds he can only imagine and begins to hope that one day he might have a different life.
 
A Chance in the World is the astonishing true story of a boy destined to become a man of resilience, determination, and vision. Through it all, Steve’s story teaches us that no matter how broken our past, no matter how great our misfortunes, we have it in us to create a new beginning and to build a place where love awaits. Published by Harper Collins Publishing, 2012.
 
Steve Pemberton currently serves as Chief People Officer for Globoforce.  Previously Pemberton served as Global Chief Diversity Officer at Walgreens Boots Alliance, the first global pharmacy-led, health and well-being enterprise in the world.
