April 27, 2021 / Comments Off on GJAC launches Diversity, Inclusion & Equity Committee


The Golf Journalists Association of Canada is committed to investing in creating policies surrounding Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. We feel, as the voice of golf journalism in this country, our voice is important.

Led by Immediate Past President David McPherson, GJAC recently created a committee to prioritize and analyze where our association can make changes and improvements to be leaders in promoting and reporting on diversity and inclusivity, as it relates to the game of golf.

Joining McPherson on this committee are Treasurer Grant Fraser, industry member Lesley Hawkins, and Lisa “Longball” Vlooswyk. The Committee has already met a couple of times and made initial recommendations to the rest of the GJAC board on where we can make immediate strides in this area.

More information on this initiative will be shared once available.
