Our title sponsorship of the AIG Women’s Open is evidence of our dedicated pursuit of gender equity and gender pay equity. With this sponsorship, we aim to demonstrate our commitment to equitable recognition of exceptional achievements of women on the golf course, in the C-Suite and in society more broadly.
In 2021, the AIG Women’s Open and The R&A set a new benchmark with the announcement of the largest prize fund in women’s major championship golf. Increasing the purse by an additional $1 million in 2022 will more than double the prize fund from 2019 when AIG’s partnership with The R&A commenced. These actions are tangible proof of our commitment to these elite women athletes and gender pay equity in women’s golf. Since setting this example, as hoped, other women’s major championships have followed our lead.
