The mission of WiR is to raise the profile of women in our sport and to achieve more positions on the various boards that run racing. Our goal is to redress the balance so that the composition of boards more closely approximates the population that has a vested interest in the sport. This issue is one that not only faces racing but vexes corporate boards, particularly in the UK, as well.
We have already gained the attention of some key players in the industry and I hope this results in positive and permanent change in the near future. I hope you find the reports and information available here of interest. I believe you will now be better equipped to discuss why Women in Racing is important and how critical it is that women feature more broadly and in greater numbers across the governing boards of our sport.
