Ellevate is thrilled to host Twitter Chats featuring our outstanding Executive Council level members from chapters all over the world.
Please join us at 12pm ET on July 13th for our special #EllevateYourself Twitter Chat with racecar driving champ and fierce advocate for women in STEM, Julia Landauer (@julialandauer).
Julia Landauer is a two-time champion racecar driver from New York City. Since making history at the age of 14 as the youngest and first female driving champion from the Skip Barber Racing Series, Julia has explored and won in all types of racing. After becoming the first female NASCAR Track Champion in her division at Motor Mile Speedway in 2015, Julia moved up and is currently racing in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, with races televised on NBCSN. In May 2016, Julia was the only woman and one of 11 racers chosen to be part of the highly selective NASCAR Next program.
In addition to racing every season since she was 10, Julia graduated from Stanford University in 2014, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Science, Technology, and Society. In that program Julia studied business, engineering, marketing, and how modern technology can be applied to racing.
Taking what she learned at school and from the racing industry, Julia has spent over five years purposefully building her brand where technology, community and racing intersect and fuse. Her active, engaging, and enthusiastic personality (which has earned her numerous professional speaking engagements), her on-track success and her strong understanding of what partners of the sport need, make Julia the ideal racer to attract new fans and sponsors to the sport.
Now settled in North Carolina, “the heart of NASCAR,” Julia is making her name synonymous with more than speed and grit; as she climbs the NASCAR ladder Julia uses her racing platform to continue advocating for STEM education, women’s empowerment, and for following your dreams despite the hurdles.
We’ll be discussing with Julia how she ended up racing cars for a living, what advice she has for aspiring professional athletes, and what it even means to be called a “female racecar driver.”
Please tweet your questions in advance with #EllevateYourself and we’ll discuss. See you on Twitter!
