Is motorsport too insular?

As we push for diversity in motorsports, maybe the industry needs to look inwards!
If as an industry it is so secretive and insular, how can anyone anyone penetrate the barrier?
Yes, don’t discuss private or contractual issues but welcoming and showing people how to progress is surely beneficial!?

Change is needed!

Good Afternoon Leanne,

I hope you’ve had a great start o the week!

I see you’ve been talking a lot about this ‘topic’ on the industry for a little while now, great to see another person ‘championing’ change here!

Have you made any particular breakthroughs or acquired any particularly interesting insight here?

Hello, there seems to be a lot of talk, and many doind their own thing tm try and help change this, including F1 In schools, individuals working with schools, driven by diversity and even Petronas encouraging woman.
I’ve spoken to some amazing people with genuine want to help attitudes.

Would be good to get many of us in a virtual room to discuss our strengths and really drive forward (pun intended).

This week I’m in an on line event from msd live. I will hope to bring this up.

Hi Lianne,

We do hear about lots of things taking place in the industry to ‘drive change’…no apologies we love a good pun or technical word here and there!

Why not arrange a podcast or series on interviews on the subject I am sure there are many who would be willing to take part?

Hope the MSD Connect event went well today…would be great to hear how the virtual networking experience went…could ‘spark’ a great conversation on our network events channel.
