2013 PACE Conference, "Breaking the Sound of Silence," will feature discussions on how to oppose an issue in a positive and meaningful way, through civil discourse and effective compromise.


Pearl Chang Esau, President and CEO of Expect More Arizona, will be the afternoon speaker for the Third Annual PACE Conference in Peoria. Esau will be joining morning keynote speaker, John Quiñones of the ABC Primetime news show "What Would You Do?" In addition to the keynote presentations by Quiñones and Esau, Emily Nottingham, Ph.D., mother of Gabe Zimmerman, who was killed in the January, 2011 mass shooting in Tucson at a community event hosted by former Congress woman Gabriel Gifford's, will speak about the role of public service in communities.

The Third Annual PACE Conference is Thursday, February 7, 2013 at the Arizona Broadway Theater in Peoria. Hosted by the city of Peoria and Arizona State University, the PACE Conference, or Positive Action through Civic Engagement, is designed for citizens seeking to become, or stay engaged in their community, leaders in the business, education, and government communities, and elected officials. The conference will demonstrate ways for engagement which are positive, constructive, and that makes a difference.

Esau is the leader of Expect More Arizona, a high expectations movement dedicated to making Arizona education the best in the nation. Prior to this role, she served as the executive director of Teach For America.

Esau was recently recognized by the Phoenix Business Journal as one of the Valley’s 25 Most Admired CEOs and by Arizona Business Magazine as one of the 50 most influential women in Arizona. Currently, Esau serves on the board of the Arizona Business and Education Coalition, the Wells Fargo Community Advisory Board, ASU’s Community Council, and Act One, an organization dedicated to increasing access to arts and culture for low-income students. She was appointed to the Governor’s Arizona Ready Council, the AZ Department of Education’s steering committee for standards and assessments, and serves as the chair of the Discovery Triangle’s expert education group.

The 2013 PACE conference, "Breaking the Sound of Silence," will feature panel discussions from experts on the use of social media to engage others in meaningful conversations, and how to oppose an issue in a positive and meaningful way, through civil discourse and effective compromise.
