Women in Motorsports North America announces Women with Drive IV Summit

After three highly successful Summits in Nashville, Charlotte, and Phoenix, Women in Motorsports North America has announced that the fourth annual Women with Drive Summit — Driven by Mobil 1 (WWD IV) will take place December 9-11, 2024, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN, to kick off PRI Show week.

Motorsports industry representatives will gather to celebrate the ‘wins’ over the past year, introduce new people to consider pursuing a career in motorsports, and discuss the issues, challenges, and barriers within the industry. Stellar keynote speakers, panel discussions, and breakout sessions have been designed to help facilitate, educate, and encourage attendees to forge ahead in the motorsports space. Attendees are open to industry executives, drivers, team members, OEMs, sponsors, racetrack representatives, and anyone interested in career opportunities. This year, the Summit has added driver workshops to address essential skills off the track that will help develop their overall career.

New initiatives for WWD IV include “Breakfast at the Brickyard,” hosted by Indianapolis Motor Speedway to officially kick off the Summit on Tuesday morning, and a limited-capacity tour on Monday afternoon of the Speedway, Rahal Letterman Lanigan, Andretti Global, and Chip Ganassi Racing shops.


A luncheon will be held at the Westin Indianapolis on Wednesday with a to-be-announced keynote. Luncheon tickets for those not attending the Summit will go on sale at a future date.

“Mobil 1 is thrilled to once again join WIMNA to continue supporting the Summit,” said Michelle Hassinger, OEM Marketing Manager for ExxonMobil, manufacturer of Mobil 1.

“Mobil 1 continues its commitment to nurturing female talent within the industry, both on and off the track. By supporting initiatives like the Summit, Mobil 1 not only contributes to the advancement of diversity in motorsports but also recognizes the value of diverse perspectives and skills in driving innovation and success.”

“We couldn’t be more excited about having WIMNA at PRI. This is a highly valued partnership; they bring a welcomed voice to the industry, and it is truly a breath of fresh air. The WIMNA team is doing tremendous work educating and creating opportunities of continued growth and prosperity for the industry that we all love and advocate for,” said Michael Good, President of PRI.

“We are excited to bring our fourth Women with Drive – Driven by Mobil 1 Summit to Indianapolis,” said Cindy Sisson, Executive Director for Women in Motorsports North America.

“Not only is Indy the perfect host city for events, but many of our sponsors and attendees hail from the area and are great advocates for our Summit. We are also thrilled to partner with PRI on this event. Having a partner like PRI will no doubt enhance our event’s reach and impact, especially with the excitement surrounding their industry-wide tradeshow. Our attendees are in for an empowering and enlightening experience.”
