Working with BCOMS, Formula 1 have welcomed Nadim Bart-Williams and Aadil Loonat as interns into the organisation. As part of a wider programme of diversity and inclusion initiatives, the roles are part of Formula 1’s commitment to creating employment opportunities. This is by offering apprenticeships and internships across the business.
Nadim Bart-Williams has been a member of BCOMS London Cohort, whilst Aadil has been in the North Cohort. As such, both students have been participating in the Masterclass Programme – a BCOMS set up that aims to support diversity in sports media.
As Formula 1 continues to build a more diverse future in motorsport, they look forward to supporting their scholarship students who will be focussed on studies and future careers.
“We are committed to increasing diversity and opportunity within this incredible sport,” said Formula 1’s President and CEO Stefano Domenicali, “and I am pleased to confirm that we will be expanding our programme for scholars until 2025, providing fantastic opportunity for some incredibly talented students to begin their journeys with Formula 1”.
Regarding the internships, BCOMS Founder, Leon Mann MBE said:
“Delighted for BCOMS Masterclass students Nadim and Aadil, who will be working at F1 this year. Both are brilliant and highly skilled young people with very bright futures. Super to see this BCOMS collaboration with F1 come to life.”
Driven By Diversity, the mission at BCOMS is to educate individuals and organisations on the value of diversity and inclusion in motorsport; and various other initiatives to train and nurture young people from underrepresented groups or with limited educational or employment opportunities. We work with talented sports media enthusiasts looking to develop their career in media.
BCOMS is proud of the strides being made by our students and alumni on the Masterclass Programme. The journeys for Nadim and Aadil will be exciting to follow and we wish them the best of luck.
