The Tee It Up golf tournament, founded by Sabrina Jenkins, is a diversity initiative of SJL 26 Event Productions and is the ultimate platform for bringing together corporate and women-owned businesses. Women supporting other women in business leads to increased representation and influence of women in leadership roles, higher economic growth, improved workplace culture, and increased collaboration and innovation. Supporting and mentoring fellow female entrepreneurs can help to develop strong networks and open up doors to new opportunities and partnerships.
With exciting pre-tournament socials, expert golf clinics, cutting-edge diversity, and business workshops, as well as an impactful expo, participating in this event helps women elevate their businesses to the next level. Attendees are empowered with the tools and resources they need to succeed, and corporate representatives can confidently seek out qualified businesses for procurement opportunities.
