The Trailblazers Virtual Golf & Lifestyle Classic is the first of its kind and unlike any other virtual panel experience; celebrating diversity, inclusion and women who are striving to grow the game. The panels will share experiences from current and former professionals, as well as influencers and female leaders in the industry.
The Trailblazers Virtual Golf & Lifestyle Classic will address golf’s most prominent stereotypes and barriers with the intention of providing inspiration and a revolutionary perspective. Panelists will come together to share personal and professional insight within their respective fields, giving attendees a behind the scenes look into a female focused perspective within the game. A special panel hosted by PGA of America featured within the celebratory programming schedule, discusses their programs and commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and growth for 2021 and beyond.
“The Trailblazers Virtual Golf & Lifestyle Classic will create a meaningful and empowering experience to bring women together around the common interest of golf. I wish I had something like this through my golf journey, so I am excited for the opportunity to give back,” says Cheyenne Woods, LPGA Player & Founding Lady Trailblazer.
The collection of broad and diverse topics will focus in on each panelist and their experiences within the game. Hosted for women and by women, this powerful celebration of golf is held during a time where women must come together to lift one another.
“The time is now to celebrate the game and one another while sharing our passion and journey through the game of golf. With our inaugural event, we want to celebrate our vision for what we want to see in the future while celebrating women in golf of all ethnicities all over the world. The future of the game belongs to the young women who look at us and see that there is opportunity to enter the game,” says Seema Sadekar, Vice President of PGD Global and Founding Trailblazer.
Net proceeds of the Trailblazers Virtual Golf & Lifestyle Classic will be placed towards identifying and supporting the next Trailblazer coming out of the NCAA and/or HBCU collegiate ranks and support their journey financially through LGPA Qualifying School.
The Trailblazers Virtual Golf & Lifestyle Classic begins on Tuesday, February 23rd at 10:00 PM EST. Preliminary registration is now open at http://www.trailblazersgolf.com
