The PGA TOUR, in conjunction with the other major bodies of golf, is committed to making the sport more diverse, equitable, and inclusive through collective action across the industry with specific focus on education and skill development, player development, marketing and communications, talent acquisition, human resources, and procurement. Like many things, this process starts from the inside out.

In 2019, the PRISM Group at the PGA TOUR was founded. To further the PGA TOUR Diversity & Inclusion Mission, PRISM strives to invite, educate, and engage new allies to achieve full inclusion for LGBTQ+ people at the PGA TOUR. PRISM was formed to change the social fabric of the PGA TOUR and the game of golf. Since inception, PRISM has moved the organization forward in a multitude of ways both internally and externally. Top achievements include working with the PGA TOUR’s Human Resources to have policies put in place such as Domestic Partner Benefits Coverage and Gender Affirming Care for PGA TOUR employees, partnerships with lifesaving LGBTQ+ organizations such as The Trevor Project, PGA TOUR marketing campaigns featuring LGBTQ+ representation and more.
