Congressional To Kick Start Quicken Loans Hosting PGA Tour Executive Women’s Day

As many of the world’s top PGA TOUR players prepare to showcase their skills at the 2016 Quicken Loans National, the tournament will serve as the backdrop for a day-long event designed to inspire professional women during the PGA TOUR Executive Women’s Day – Monday June 20th.

The women will gather in the famed Congressional Country Club clubhouse in Bethesda with up to 150 Washington, D.C.-area businesswomen will participate in the event, which will include keynote speaker presentations, panel discussions, networking sessions and a behind-the-scenes tour of the tournament.

The PGA TOUR is proud to partner with Morgan Stanley, which serves as element sponsor of the panel discussion and keynote address for nine of the Executive Women’s Day events held around the country, including the Quicken Loans National event.


In all, 19 PGA TOUR Executive Women’s Day events will be held during TOUR tournaments in 2016, with some of the nation’s most dynamic female business leaders and innovators tapped to discuss critical issues facing today’s female executives. This popular business forum annually brings together influential women in tournament markets nationwide to participate in an engaging event focused on professional development, leadership management, networking, corporate dialogue and corporate social responsibility.

The Keynote address will be delivered by Carla Harris, vice chairman, global wealth management, and managing director and senior client advisor at Morgan Stanley.  Harris’ discussion will focus on performance currency vs. relationship currency, and what it takes to be a powerful, impactful and influential leader.
