AGPC General Manager of Commercial, Sales and Marketing, Corina Black, said that the Corporation is thrilled to present the Women Driving Leadership program and believes it is a great platform to encourage and inspire women to pursue a career in motorsport, as well as science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  

“The Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix strategy for some time now has been about engaging a broader audience to the sport, particularly females, and this program celebrates the very women that are leading the charge,” said Black. 

“Events like Women Driving Leadership provide a unique way for women and men to engage with the sport and the opportunity to network with driven, business masterminds all in a premium and intimate setting,” Black continued.

Dare to Be Different, a non-profit association aimed at inspiring and increasing female participation in motorsport, will have an interactive exhibit in the Innovation and Technology Hub where the younger generation can seek information, advice and meet industry role models across the four-days of the Grand Prix.
