Sa mission est de créer des opportunités égalitaires et promouvoir un traitement égal pour les femmes concernées par les activités relatives au motocyclisme. Elle établit une collaboration étroite avec toutes les Commissions sportives, extra-sportives, Collèges et d'éventuels partenaires extérieurs, experts dans le monde du motocyclisme. Elle oriente le CdD sur toutes les mesures qu'elle estime devoir être prises pour atteindre les objectifs qu’elle s’est fixés.
La FIM est un membre actif du réseau Lausanne Network for Women in International Sport.
The FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission (CFM) was created in 2006 with the mission to increase the number of women involved in all related motorcycling activities and provide them with better opportunities and possibilities. Promoting the presence of women in motorcycling activities and giving them the chance to be part of the wide motorcycling family is our goal and we hope you will also contribute to it. We also put all our efforts in improving collaboration and communication with motorcycling stakeholders to develop the sport and the activities for women.
TALENT TO COME FIRST meaning to choose the persons not because of their gender but because of their capabilities and abilities. To a certain extent, it means that women would naturally be part of motorcycling and no specific efforts or promotion would be needed. "Talent to come first" is a slogan or baseline for the commission to underline that promotion, education and communication are key and that more education, training and tuition are required to have more talents. Having more women at leadership positions as well as within volunteers and officials is crucial.

Show all the opportunities inside and outside motorcycling
Show the benefits to the FIM stakeholders of having more women
