Maria Fassi is an up and coming star on the LPGA Tour, turning professional in May 2019 after a very successful college career at Arkansas which included winning the 2019 NCAA Women's Championship Division I Individual Title, the 2019 SEC Individual Championship, and a 2nd place in the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur. What we love most about Maria isn’t just her skill – it’s her passion. On and off the course, Maria recognizes the power that sport can have in connecting, empowering, and changing lives.

At the 2019 Dow GLBI, Maria spoke at SOAR - an immersive inclusion leadership event for customers, suppliers, employees and community leaders - where she led a discussion on the importance of broader female representation in sports. After seeing first-hand the therapeutic benefits that sport can have in a person’s life, Maria also gets excited about encouraging those with disabilities to get involved in sports. In all this, it is clear Maria lives and breathes Dow’s value of Inclusivity.

When Maria isn’t playing golf, you can find her cooking, meditating or spending time with her family in Orlando and Argentina.
