Good Progress during 2023… But still more to do!!
Cricket is a game for everyone. It can connect communities, improve lives, and bring people from diverse backgrounds together. Widening participation in cricket and inspiring a generation to say “cricket is a game for me” has been the cornerstone of the Derbyshire Cricket Foundation strategy for several years. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is therefore integral to our core purpose, and is key to sustaining and growing the game.
Our 2023 EDI Plan was our third annual plan focuses on EDI and this report share the progress we made during the year against that plan. We are proud of the progress we have made during 2023, which is reflected in this report, but we recognise that there is still much more to do. Our work on EDI will continue in 2024 and beyond, and we will continue to provide annual updates on our progress.
