On May 26th, the eve of the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix, Grace Influential hosted the exclusive launch event for the Grace Influential Impact Award in partnership with Formula 1® aboard the Azzurra II in Port Hercule.
Brisa Carleton, CEO of the Princess Grace Foundation and Grace Influential said, “This new Grace Influential Impact Award is a key pillar of our commitment to introduce Princess Grace’s legacy of positive change to new generations. We look forward to recognizing each Formula 1® team’s unique efforts toward positive societal impact and what better place to celebrate this important work than in Monaco.”
President and CEO of Liberty Media and Formula 1® Owner, Greg Maffei shared, “Formula 1® has set out an ambitious sustainability strategy to forge a path to be completely carbon neutral by 2030, not only within our organization but also including our global venues and race attendees. It is a pleasure for us to support the Grace Influential Impact Award to recognize and amplify all of the efforts made by the teams.”
Forbes Monaco added, "Maffei reflected that the impact award serves as an example of how people can recognize and amplify efforts being made in motorsport. Many teams have undertaken great initiatives on their own and the work they are doing is important."
The annual Grace Influential Award is being developed in collaboration with Dr. Cristiana Pace and the winner will be selected by a diverse panel of leaders in the field, motorsport luminaries, celebrities active in positive impact, and selected youth judges. The first Grace Influential Impact Award will be presented at a dedicated ceremony during the Monaco Grand Prix 2023.
