As part of Cricket Scotland’s ongoing commitment to engage with the independent review into racism in the sport, individuals across the organisation have begun undertaking Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) training.

Following recommendations from the review’s interim update, carried out by global EDI experts Plan4Sport, the crucial training will be rolled out across the organisation in the coming months, with the first sessions taking place last week.

Five bespoke compulsory sessions are being provided to staff, players, Board and Council members for the first time, facilitated by Plan4Sport.

The education sessions cover topics including the Equality Act 2010, protected characteristics, appropriate language and managing incidents. The workshops include examples from the world of sport and business where racism and other forms of discrimination have taken place and enable delegates to understand where and how this could happen in cricket and what actions should be taken if discrimination occurs.

Interim Chief Executive of Cricket Scotland, John Lunn, said: “This bespoke EDI training from Plan4Sport is an important step in helping facilitate meaningful change within the sport of cricket and is something we expect all staff, players, Council and Board members to undertake. Looking to the future, we will also be looking at how we can embed ongoing EDI awareness and training into the organisation on a long-term basis.

“It is essential that as an organisation and individuals, we bolster our knowledge and understanding about discrimination in all its forms to ensure we can build an inclusive environment where everyone is treated with respect and has fair access to opportunities.”

The new training sits alongside introductory EDI training provided by sportscotland annually to all sports governing bodies, which new Cricket Scotland staff, Council and Board members can attend.
