Malia Arrington is the Director of Ethics and Safe Sport with the U.S. Olympic Committee. Malia joined the USOC in 2011 and her position was established as a result of the recommendations of the USOC's Working Group for Safe Training Environments. In its report, the working group encouraged the USOC to take a "leadership role" in promoting safe training environments, a charge Malia now directs. Among other things, Arrington’s duties include the development of centralized and standardized resources for use by National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and encouraging NGBs to adopt policies, practices, programs and tools to address sexual and physical misconduct. Arrington's law experience coincides with her background in sports. While obtaining a bachelor's degree in international studies at Emory University, she was also a member of the varsity soccer team and coached youth soccer in Atlanta. She also has a J.D. and master's degree in biomedical ethics from the University of Virginia.
