Loopstra Nixon Celebrates International Women's Day

Loopstra Nixon recognized International Women’s Day this year by welcoming championship-winning professional racecar driver Demi Chalkias to our head office for a fireside chat moderated by Associates Baira Oldvurova and Ankit Sareen.  

Demi grew up in the driving community but only started racing after a hip injury ended her triathlete career. She posted a win on her first race and has been garnering accolades ever since. Demi is the only female member of her race team, and was the lone woman driver to make it to the podium at the 2023 Honda Indy.

She spoke movingly about her experience challenging stereotypes and being a force for change – describing her efforts to push the boundaries of traditional gender roles as an honour and encouraging attendees to “walk in knowing that you belong.”
