GOLF 20/20 Diversity Initiative
GOLF 20/20's mission is to unite and activate the golf industry around key strategic initiatives that increase participation and retention of participants, inspire involvement and interest in the game, and promote sustainable best practices for golf facilities.
As part of that mission, GOLF 20/20 is committed to increasing participation specifically as it relates to ethnic and gender diversity.
GOLF 20/20 created a Diversity Task Force to address that issue. The Diversity Task Force has been actively involved in seeking opportunities to create greater diversity in the game and business of golf in four areas: recreational play, competitive play, careers in golf and suppliers to the golf industry. Diversity Task Force member Clemmie Perry was recently honored by the White House as one of the nation's "Champions of Change" for extracurricular enrichment, afterschool, and summer programming for marginalized girls, including girls of color, through her Women of Color Golf and Girls on the Green Tee programs in Tampa, FL.
The task force has developed the following organization precepts:
To be a catalyst for making golf look like America.
To increase ethnic and gender diversity in the golf industry among recreational and competitive players and in the business of golf.
- Recreational Golf
- Competitive Golf
- Careers in golf
- Suppliers to the golf Industry
