Motorsport’s governing body will attempt to drive out online hate speech and abuse by collaborating with other affected groups.

The FIA said it has support from the European Commission, motorcyling’s governing body, and Professional Game Match Officials Limited — the body responsible for match officials in English professional soccer — to tackle the problems.

The FIA revealed its strategic approach in a white paper on Thursday that “sets out the sustained and collaborative approach the FIA will adopt in confronting online toxicity,” it said in a statement.

The document called “A Strategic Response To Online Hate Speech In Sport” has drawn on expertise from industry experts and government institutions. It was presented to the FIA’s 241 member clubs and also shared at a World Motor Sport Council in Bahrain on Thursday ahead of the season-opening Formula One race on Sunday.

The three-day programme explored topics in Design Thinking (understanding the customer journey and drivers of change), Digital Transformation (mapping approaches to change business thinking and modelling); and Futures Thinking (analysing emerging issues and develop for future scenarios). The sessions were delivered by the faculty’s esteemed professors and teaching staff.

AIM is one of the top Business School in Southeast Asia, situated in the Makati City.  After the prolonged COVID-19 shutdown, FIA Region II Delegates were the first students to be welcomed back to in-person learning on campus.

“The FIA University programme provides a useful platform to exchange information, ideas, experiences, and lessons learned in our own sustainable mobility work in our respective countries”, said FIA Region II President Greig Craft. “I was gratified to see so many Delegates starting the year with professional development from a top-ranked business school. We look forward to continuing the partnership with AIM.”

The FIA University Region II Programme gathering 21 Club Delegates started today in Manila, Philippines. Designed by the Asian Institute of Management in partnership with the FIA and the FIA Region II, this programme aims to enhance customer-centricity and foster communication and collaboration between FIA Clubs’ Senior Executives. It also seeks to prepare them for the challenges coming ahead in the Asia-Pacific region.
