Diversity and Inclusion initiatives have become mainstream for the golf industry today. The NGCOA continues with a significant commitment to bringing awareness and education to the golf community. Diversity is any dimension used to differentiate groups and people from one another. In a nutshell, it’s about empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, and national origin. Inclusion is an organizational effort and practices in which different groups or individuals with diverse backgrounds are culturally and socially accepted, welcomed, and treated equally. These efforts intended outcomes are to create more diversified golf participation to include ownership and leadership roles.
