Kindred Group reaffirms support for women in horse racing

Kindred Group has extended its funding for Racing Home, an initiative that aims to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by working mothers in the horse racing industry.

It is run by Women in Racing, whom Kindred partnered with last year to sponsor the programme, which was delivered in collaboration with Simply Racing and Oxford Brookes.

This resulted in a report entitled ‘Racing Home, Working Mothers in the Horseracing Industry’ which addressed some of the difficult choices, challenges and stereotypes encountered by women with children.

With support from Kindred, Women in Racing will work to implement the report’s recommendations. This includes practical and educational changes, such as developing and digitising a “transparent Racing Home portal (website)”.

“We are delighted to be able to support the important work Women in Racing are doing to benefit women in the horse racing industry,” remarked Ed Nicholson, Head of Kindred Racing Communications and Sponsorship.

“At Kindred, we strongly believe that a diverse workforce enhances our performance, and we focus on improving our diversity across the group.”

Tallulah Lewis, Women in Racing Chair, expressed her gratitude to Kindred, saying: “Women in Racing is incredibly grateful for the continued support Kindred Group provides for the Racing Home project.

“The team at Kindred have supported us since the inception of Racing Home and pushed us to keep going with our work. We are very excited for this next phase.

“We look forward to implementing the findings from the research and continuing to work with Kindred Group to make horse racing a more sustainable environment for working mothers and parents.”
