SPEED Institute is 23XI Racing’s educational and professional development initiative, launched in 2021. The initiative expands on the team’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in sports, specifically in the motorsports industry. 23XI Racing, along with its partners under the SPEED Institute program, will provide educational opportunities as well as diversity recruiting and professional development in the motorsports field.
23XI Racing and its partners will offer scholarship programs to students with an interest in areas such as marketing, communications, human resources, finance, engineering and trade disciplines in the motorsports industry.
23XI Racing will offer paid internships to students to increase participation from underrepresented groups in the disciplines of technology, engineering, and in the business of motorsports, including trade disciplines. The program is designed to give undergraduate and graduate students opportunities to learn the motorsports industry in various fields both virtually and in person at the 23XI Racing shop.
The 23XI Fellowship Program is an opportunity for students pursuing an undergraduate, graduate or doctoral degree in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines to receive a scholarship and be employed upon degree completion at 23XI Racing.
23XI Racing is committed to creating a diverse workforce. These recruitment and development programs will provide opportunities for underrepresented individuals who are out of school and who have an interest in working in motorsports.
DIVERSITY RECRUITMENT & EXECUTIVE DEVELOPMENT
I’m really proud to be associated with a team and group of partners that believe and share in the same vision that I have to make motorsports a more welcoming place for everyone. What we are building, both on the track and off the track, at 23XI Racing is really cool to be a part of and I’m excited to continue to use my platform to help open doors and bring more diversity to our sport."
