Among those joining Johnson at the sold-out event will be NASCAR President Steve Phelps and IMSA President John Doonan as they present stories of challenges, successes, best practices, and strategies for achieving diversity and equity for women in motorsports.
In addition to speaking at the Summit, Johnson is the featured guest on the WIMNA Wednesday Series “5 Questions With…” on the organization’s website.

The event will be co-hosted by sports broadcaster Amanda Busick, WIMNA co-founder Lyn St. James and GSEvents President Cindy Sisson. Charlotte Motor Speedway CEO Marcus Smith will welcome and open the event.
WIMNA works to mentor, support and encourage more women to pursue careers in motorsport; educate about the sport and the types of careers available; communicate how the motorsports industry can better reach, encourage and attract more women to roles; and inspire and advocate for the creation of more inclusive programs. Additionally, WIMNA is a 501(c)3 public charity and supports scholarships, mentorship programs and internships for women.
