Women of F1 to deliver inspirational talks with Motorsport UK’s Girls on Track programme

Formula 1 has teamed up with Motorsport UK’s Girls on Track programme to host ‘An Evening With…’, a series of inspirational talks with the women of F1, to inspire others and show what it’s like to work in a global international sport.

Over 11 nights in February, women working across F1 will be taking part in virtual webinars over Zoom, giving advice and insight on their roles in the sport, and taking questions about their experiences from the viewing audience. Throughout the series there will be talks from women working in digital, IT, legal, procurement, marketing, race promotion, sponsorship, media rights, TV and hospitality covering every aspect of the business.

As part of the commitments made by Formula 1 to increase diversity and inclusion throughout the motorsport industry, we are working closely with FIA Girls on Track (formerly known as Dare to be Different), as well as other motorsport charities and initiatives. Formula 1 set out its own #WeRaceAsOne platform aimed at tackling the biggest issues facing our sport and global communities, underpinning the Formula 1 strategy to make a tangible difference in the world in which we race. Whilst the 2020 season has seen the sport embrace a fighting spirit in these battles, the initiative will continue to grow, with a focus on the sustainability, diversity and inclusion and community.

Dare to be Different started off as a non-profit organisation founded by former racing driver Susie Wolff and the CEO of the Motor Sports Association, Rob Jones in 2016. The organisation’s aim is to increase the participation of women in all forms of motor racing and change the views of women in perceived male-dominated industries. In 2020 Dare to be Different was recognised by the FIA and joined up with FIA Women in Motorsport, amalgamating with FIA Girls on Track.
