With so much going on at Sussex Cricket to over the past 18 months to promote inclusivity and make cricket a game for everyone, the Club has provided an update on a range of initiatives designed to support the objectives of our EDI Strategy.
What was our plan?
In 2021 we developed the We Are You Are strategy. This Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan would underpin the work carried out by the Club and its charitable arm, the Sussex Cricket Foundation, by providing objectives and direction to increase participation, make our sport a game for everyone and make The 1st Central County Ground a welcoming environment.
You can view the EDI Action Plan, along with our EDI Policies by visiting the Inclusion section of our website here: https://sussexcricket.co.uk/equality-diversity-and-inclusion
Over the past 18 months Sussex Cricket has run a number of initiatives and programmes to make cricket a game for everyone, whilst also investing capital into developing infrastructure to support the growth of the sport across the County.
These are just some of the highlights and victories that have been achieved as a result of our EDI Action Plan. But it doesn’t stop there.
Sussex Cricket is committed to continuing its mission to make cricket a game for everyone and although we have succeeded in meeting a number of our objectives, we understand that the job is never finished.
Sussex Cricket will continue to work listen to stakeholders, fans, members and people in the community to ensure their voices are heard.
We will work alongside the ECB and each of the other 17 First-Class Counties to carry out the ECB’s action plan outlined in their response to the report. You can view the full response and plan by clicking here.
