Diversity & Inclusion
As a global organization, the PGA TOUR aspires to reflect the regions and communities where we play as we believe diversity of thought and background is vital to our success and growth. We strive to create an inclusive and welcoming culture and be a positive example for all our constituents and partners.
Inclusion Leadership Council
As announced at the PGA TOUR You Meeting, the Inclusion Leadership Council (ILC) will usher in the next phase of the TOUR’s evolving diversity & inclusion (D&I) efforts. With a focused set of strategic goals in place for 2020, this group will lead the charge of targeted action steps for the company.

In June 2017, PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan joined more than 160 CEOs from leading companies around the world to sign a pledge in support of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. There are now more than 500 supporting CEOs.
As a signatory, the PGA TOUR has committed to taking the following steps to increase diversity and foster inclusion within our respective organizations and the larger business community:
1. Continue to cultivate workplaces that support open dialogue on complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion.
2. Implement and expand unconscious bias education.
3. Share best known—as well as unsuccessful—actions.
Learn more about the PGA TOUR's progress by viewing the posts shared on CEOaction.com about our Executive Director Initiative, CORE's (formerly MOSAIC) connection with Commissioner Monahan following the 2017 Charlottesville tragedy, as well as their forum tapping into future, diverse talent and our Emerging Leaders program.
