The ECB is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion across the sport of cricket from those playing the game, watching, volunteering, officiating, coaching, and working, so that everyone can say “Cricket is a game for me”.
Inclusion and diversity
Celebrating diversity on and off the pitch
Disability Confident Employer
The ECB is a Disability Confident Employer, showing our commitment to recruiting and retaining disabled people and people with health conditions for their skills and talent.
Stonewall Diversity Champion
We have partnered with the UK’s leading LGBT charity Stonewall, to champion equality across the game. We know that people perform better when they can be themselves, so we ensure all LGBT staff are accepted without exception across the organisation.
Diversity Action Plan
The Diversity Action Plan (PDF) reports on the progress the ECB has made in recent years, and details our short and long-term goals and actions.
The plan will be applied to all levels throughout the organisation, and to all aspects of diversity including gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and disability.
Gender Pay Gap Report
From drawing a full-house crowd at Lord’s to watch England win the 2017 ICC Women’s World Cup Final, to improving our governance by exceeding Sport England’s target for a 30% female Board, we are proud of the role we are playing in breaking down barriers for women in sport both on and off the field.
Our ambition is to be a gender-balanced organisation by increasing female representation at all levels and see more women in leadership positions.
The ECB has produced Gender Pay Gap Reports for 2017 and 2018.
