Cricket Scotland has today launched a search for people to join a new Conduct In Sport Panel (CISP), as it continues its response to the recent independent review into racism in Scottish cricket.
CISP will be the independent review panel that will oversee the investigation of concerns of conduct in cricket throughout Scotland. it is anticipated that 20 volunteer members from the community will be appointed. CISP will initially focus on cases raised as a result of the Changing The Boundaries report but will then remain as a crucial part of governance for Cricket Scotland.
Appointments to CISP will be made by the Board of Cricket Scotland for an initial 12-month period.
Anyone who feels they have skills or experience to bring to CISP are encouraged to apply, particularly those with EDI expertise, lived experience, sports administration, former cricketers, safeguarding experience, senior legal and HR professionals. A wide range of people and experiences will ensure just and fair outcomes.
Interim Chief Executive of Cricket Scotland, Gordon Arthur, said: “It is vital that we continue to make progress in addressing the challenges facing our sport not least in terms of racism and discrimination.
“Today’s announcement is a significant step forward in that regard, as we start the process of creating a new Conduct In Sport Panel.
“We want to see positive change in our sport and the creation of this Panel is vital part of that change.” Anyone can put an application forward to be considered and applications will be made through the Cricket Scotland website HERE.
