Created in 1950 by 13 pioneering female Founders, the LPGA, whose members now represent over 60 countries, is the longest-standing professional women’s sports organization. Through the LPGA Tour, the Epson Tour, a joint venture with the Ladies European Tour and the LPGA Professionals, the LPGA provides female professionals the opportunity to pursue their dreams in the game of golf at the highest level. In addition to its professional tours and teaching accreditation programs, the LPGA features a fully integrated Foundation, which offers best-in-class programming for female golfers through its junior golf programming and LPGA Amateurs chapters, tournaments and membership. LPGA aims to use its unique platform to inspire, transform and advance opportunities for girls and women, on and off the golf course. The LPGA is headquartered in Central Florida.
The LPGA is experiencing unprecedented growth as global brands continue to recognize the value of aligning their corporate values with women’s professional golf. LPGA revenue, media, corporate partner and membership growth are at an all-time high and expected to continue as the culture is changing and values are evolving for women’s sports. In this people-focused organization, where talent is the most important asset, the Association is hiring a Senior Director, Talent & Culture to support the organization throughout the employee life cycle as the organization scales. Reporting to the LPGA Senior Vice President, Global Talent & Culture, this leader will be based in Central Florida and play a key leadership role in planning, directing and implementing the LPGA’s talent and culture strategy.
