Distinguished Speaker Series

The Power of Possibilities
We proudly launched AbilityPath’s Distinguished Speaker Series in the Spring of 2018 with the compelling storyteller and anti-bullying trailblazer Lizzie Velasquez. The conversation series, sponsored by Peninsula Health Care District, is hosted four times a year at various locations throughout the greater Bay Area. We bring the most relevant, thought-provoking change makers of our time together to discuss important issues that impact the lives of those with developmental disabilities in California. Topics range from childhood diagnosis and early intervention to inclusive employment, lifespan planning and independent living.

Previous speakers have included: Actors Colin Farrell, Patrick Dempsey, Holly Robinson Peete, and Lauren Potter; NFL pros Steve Young and Kurt Warner; journalism activists Steve Silberman and Nancy O’Dell, as well as change makers like Miss Montana Alexis Wineman.

The 2019 season will kick off in May. More details to come.
