Cindy Parlow Speaker Biography


Three-time Olympian and first female President of U.S. Soccer Cindy Parlow Cone made history as the first female President of U.S. Soccer. She is also first person to hold the position who also played for a senior U.S. National Team. As a player, Cone is a National Soccer Hall of Fame inductee, and a three-time Olympian with two gold and one silver medal. The star striker has overseen major shifts in the Federation’s priorities, focusing on taking meaningful action in the diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging space and putting an emphasis on team building throughout the organization. She has overseen multiple major commercial agreements, was instrumental in resolving the Women’s National Team landmark lawsuit for equal pay, and helped U.S. Soccer reach a historic collective bargaining agreement that guarantees equal pay – including World Cup prize money – the first country to do so.

Cone has won both the Hermann Trophy and the M.A.C. Player of the Year awards, and is the youngest player ever to win both an Olympic gold medal and a Women’s World Cup title. Cone serves as the Girls’ Director for NCFC Youth, and sits on the board for Goals for Girls, a non-profit that uses soccer to teach leadership skills to young women. She has previously served on the Athlete’s Council as well as numerous committees at FIFA and at U.S. Soccer, including the FIFA Steering Committee. Cone offers impactful insights from her incredible career on and off the field, as well as lessons in adversity and leadership that inspire audiences to rise to any challenge.
