CHICAGO – This year’s SheBelieves Summit will take place virtually Feb. 11-12.
The 2021 SheBelieves Summit will provide college students and young professionals the opportunity to gain valuable insights through panels and workshops centered around the SheBelieves core pillars of confidence, career and community.
The Summit is part of U.S. Soccer’s SheBelieves platform, which is focused on providing women and girls the tools to pursue their dreams in sport and beyond. In its sixth year, U.S. Soccer has added additional SheBelieves programming, including the SheBelieves internship program and SheBelieves online academy to increase its reach and provide access to more young girls across the country.
“For more than 35 years, the U.S. women’s national team players have inspired young girls with their impressive performance and success on the field,” U.S. Soccer president and former USWNT player Cindy Parlow Cone said in a statement. “In 2015, U.S. Soccer took that inspiration showcased by cheering young girls at countless matches over the years and created a focused, organized and impactful campaign focused on female empowerment with SheBelieves.
“I’m looking forward to being part of this year’s SheBelieves Summit and joining the amazing collection of speakers that will share their impressive stories of success and provide young women across the country with the tools and inspiration to achieve their goals.”
The two-day event will take place virtually with a goal to inspire through discussions featuring role models and breakout sessions designed to provide attendees with hands-on experiences and tools for success.
Programming will include a fireside chat featuring former USWNT star Abby Wambach and a commissioner’s conversation with NWSL commissioner Lisa Baird and WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert. Panels will showcase a diverse group of women in varying fields from STEM to sports, including Parlow Cone. Daily breakout sessions will center around topics such as mastering virtual presentation skills, professional development and identifying personal and professional strengths.
