About Women in Racing (WiR)

The objectives of Women in Racing look to enhance mentoring and development opportunities, develop cross-industry working groups and the chance to network in order to share knowledge and best practice. This initiative is independent of the BHA, Great British Racing or any body in horse racing.

Established in September 2009, the vision is to reach women across the industry to raise their profile and, with that visibility, encourage more women to be appointed into senior roles. With such role models, it is hoped that more women will come into horse racing and enrich the sport accordingly.

 

 

 

Mission Statement

"Women in Racing is created to develop the profile of women in the sport: To encourage senior appointments at Board level across the industry and to attract more women into Racing, to strengthen connections and collaborate on approaches to help promote the health of the sport and to enhance its reputation as an attractive sector in which to build a career."
