The FIA Women in Motorsport Commission is poised for its third international Seminar in Monaco this week (July 7-8). Drawing together more than 100 delegates from 68 countries around the world, with both physical and online attendance, the two-day Seminar will not only reflect on more than a decade of action, but explore opportunities to accelerate greater equality, access and inclusion for women in the sport.

The opening session, which also forms part of the wider FIA Conference, will look at the work of the Commission and discuss the importance of like-minded partners in forging paths for female competitors.

After an opening address by FIA President Jean Todt, Michèle Mouton, President of the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission, will be joined by representatives from Ferrari, the Richard Mille Racing Team and Iron Dames to discuss the shared vision all three racing outfits have towards promoting opportunities for females in the sport. Maya Weug, the winner of the inaugural FIA Girls on Track - Rising Stars programme and the first female to join the Ferrari Driver Academy, will also join the panel to discuss how the project is helping her realise her racing dreams.

 

This panel discussion will be broadcast live on the WIM Facebook page
on Wednesday July 7 from 13:30 hrs CET

Drawing on the success of the first two events - in Paris in 2012 and Lisbon in 2016 - the FIA Women in Motorsport Seminar is a unique opportunity to unite the motor sport community, the Commission’s members and national representatives in more than 75 countries. Distinguished guests and experts in various fields will also join to discuss and debate challenges within the sport and how to make a positive contribution to society.

Within the context of the FIA’s Purpose Driven movement, diversity and inclusion are one of the four pillars to driving change and the Seminar will seek to address what more needs to be put in place to balance the equality scales.
