UPDATE: On August, 20th, 2012 it was announced that Augusta National now has its first two female members! Sandra Rupp is delighted. Many thanks to all who participated in this “hole in one” decision.
ORIGINAL POST APRIL 2012: There has been a lot of discussion in the last few weeks about Women on a variety of fronts. I think Augusta National Golf Club has a wonderful opportunity this year to invite women including the new IBM CEO Virginia “Ginni” Rometty into their Membership. Notably they have invited the last four CEOs of IBM into their club as one of the three sponsors of The Masters golf tournament. 99% of US Golf Clubs allow Women as members. This tournament is sponsored by corporations, covered by the media and watched around the globe. This year’s winner Bubba Watson has discussed his support for Women & Augusta, as have the U.S. President, Gov. Romney, Piers Morgan, and Donald Trump. How do you feel about Augusta? Here are my weekend thoughts on Why Augusta & Women Matter. I am tweeting my Video to Augusta Members @BillGates @BoonePickens @Jack_Welch and @RealDonaldTrump. STAY TUNED & Best wishes from Sandra Rupp @ExecCareerCoach
