In January, symplr announced a new golf sponsorship program and has since welcomed new members. LPGA pro Azahara Muñoz was among the first brand ambassadors in the program. The partnership with Muñoz is unique and goes beyond the golf course, given that she was set to begin 2022 on maternity leave. symplr’s decision to partner with Muñoz symbolizes our dedication to all hard-working parents regardless of their chosen roles!
Muñoz is back competing on the LPGA once again. Her return to competition came in early September and has been impressive: She's made the cut in her first three events.
Now, we’re thrilled that she’s teaming up with our symplr Women’s Initiative Network (sWIN) on November 17 for an in-depth and personal conversation. Muñoz will share her experiences and insights on topics including:
- How she got into the game
- Her rise to the top of her profession
- Being a leader in a male-dominated industry
- Finding work-life balance
