What is the USGA’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) plan?

The USGA has been actively engaging The Country Club and Brookline’s Chief Diversity Officer (Diversity, Inclusion & Community Relations Office) to begin outlining the USGA’s commitment to further strengthen its DEI initiatives around the U.S. Open Championship. The USGA and The Country Club are focused on several key initiatives to support DEI and the greater Brookline community, including but not limited to: volunteer recruitment, championship employment hiring opportunities, USGA supplier diversity, community programming leading up to the U.S. Open, and the provision of tickets to the CPC for community fundraising efforts to further support DEI initiatives within the greater Brookline community. 

The USGA and The Country Club presented an update to the Community Partnership Committee on its U.S. Open DEI planning efforts on December 8 ,2021.
