Women in Racing always likes to hear from our members and what they think of the important issues facing our sport.. Liz Peel, who served two full terms on the committee, has shared her account of last week’s AGM and the publication of the diversity research and we wanted to share this with you
The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) welcomes publication of the first-ever research study of women’s representation and diversity in racing. While this confirms that progress is being made on gender diversity, racing faces similar challenges to other sports in ensuring that people from all backgrounds are represented at all levels of our sport.
