CHICAGO (January 13, 2022) – As part of U.S. Soccer’s ongoing commitment to empowering young women and girls while continuing to grow women’s soccer in the United States and across the globe, the 2022 SheBelieves Summit, presented by Deloitte, will take place this year on March 18 and 19 in Los Angeles. The event will be run in hybrid model with both speakers and attendees participating in person and virtually via SheBelieves Hub.
In its seventh year, the SheBelieves platform continues to grow into one of the largest women focused platforms across the world. With the vision of inspiring the next generation, U.S. Soccer and Deloitte will provide college students with the opportunity to learn from and network with industry professionals through a range of panels, lectures, and breakout sessions highlighting key themes in the areas of Community, Confidence, and Career.
The two-day hybrid event will feature speakers from the sports industry and beyond aiming to help provide attendees with the tools needed to help secure their first jobs in their chosen careers or continue on the journey to reach their goals.
After two years of totally virtual summits, the upcoming SheBelieves Summit will take place March 18-19, 2022, at Hudson Loft in Los Angeles. Some participants will attend in person and some will attend virtually. This marks the first time that a SheBelieves Summit has been held on the West Coast since its inception in 2018.
In addition to the Summit, SheBelieves Cup and SheBelieves Internship, U.S. Soccer will launch two new platforms in 2022 with SheBelieves FanArt and SheBelieves Rocks, which aims to address the gender imbalance in the Music Industry.
“I’m very proud of how the SheBelieves initiatives and especially the SheBelieves Summit have grown over the past few years,” said U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone. “Achievement is about hard work and perseverance but it’s also about opportunity, and what the SheBelieves Summit offers to young women is fantastic. Female role models are vitally important, as is knowing that women have that support from others in achieving their goals. It’s been a difficult few years for everyone, but I’m glad we can stage the Summit this year to keep providing this platform for the amazing women who are speakers and the highly motivated and talented women who attend.”
Sessions will highlight young, female entrepreneurs, professional development skills, and setting and exceeding personal and professional goals. Speakers will include individuals from U.S. Soccer, Deloitte, new National Women’s Soccer league club Angel City FC, the NBA, and more.

SheBelieves is a platform that encourages girls and women of all ages to accomplish their goals and dreams, in sports and beyond. SheBelieves was originally launched in the run-up to the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup and has since evolved into a special series of events and programming that bring a powerful message of empowerment and that of believing in yourself into communities across the nation.
