The event will also include an introduction from Rose Grissell (Head of Diversity and Inclusion, BHA).

Mentoring is a key objective of Women in Racing (WiR) and the group is delighted with the success of this formal programme with senior members as mentors, based in Scotland and northern England right through to the midlands and the south across all facets of the industry.

Mentors cover non-executive, corporate and entrepreneurial ambitions. The objective is to provide WiR members who cross many of the communities in racing with tailored support, encouragement, guidance and contacts as needed to help ensure that talented people can develop.

The door is always open for new mentors and mentees to join the programme, which remains a free benefit as part of the WiR membership. Bookings are now open, join us for a fantastic day and find out more about the scheme and meet those already involved.
