“There are so many opportunities for Women in Motorsport”.
Susie Wolff, Women in Motorsport Forum, Singapore, September 2013
Motorsport is generally perceived as a male dominated industry, mostly as the majority of the high profile positions in the top tiers of the sport that are televised worldwide, are men.
Although women are now starting to move into higher positions in the sport, many of the women involved are very much behind the scenes, or overlooked altogether. There are just as many female motorsport fans as there are men, but maybe don’t participate as much as they should as they may feel intimidated.
There are many women involved in motorsport, especially on the operations side, plus more female young drivers, especially in Asia. With this ever-increasing population of women in the industry there is an opportunity to build a community in Asia of women in motorsport to promote their contribution and give support to their efforts and successes.
The Asia Women in Motorsport Association (AWIMA) is open to all women who work, or are involved in Asian motorsport and all the ladies who are fans of motorsport from around the world.
- To promote the interests of motorsport generally.
- To celebrate women’s contributions to motor sport.
- To further the interests of women in the industry across all areas.
- To be a networking and mentoring platform.
- To be an easily accessible resource for women currently in the industry, or looking to get involved.
