About Keynote Speaker Joanna Lohman
Dubbed the “Rainbow Warrior,” Joanna Lohman played as a midfielder for the USWNT for nine years. During her playing career, Lohman built a platform for social impact and became the first player in Washington Spirit history to have her jersey retired.
In 2021, Lohman authored her first book, “Raising Tomorrow’s Champions: What the Women’s National Soccer Team Teaches About Grit, Authenticity and Winning.” (Goodreads review here.) Lohman currently travels the country as a keynote speaker and leadership consultant.
In addition to being an athlete, writer, and speaker, Lohman is a champion for women’s and LGBTQ equality. She is a human rights activist and high performance expert, serves as a sports diplomat for the State Department, and strives to live an unabashedly authentic life based on deep-rooted acceptance of differences.
