Proud Cricket hits off again for 2019.
In partnership with Proud 2 Play, Cricket Victoria received funding from the VicHealth Innovation Challenge for our ‘Proud Cricket’ initiative.
Proud Cricket is designed to improve equity, diversity and inclusiveness by supporting clubs with education to create more inclusive club practices and improve club culture. The idea of the program is to improve education and embed a better participation pathway for LGBTI+ people with an overall aim to increase the participation of the Victorian LGBTI+ community within cricket. Clubs will also be eligible to receive a small grants incentive to become involved in the initiative.
The first stage of the program will be to provide education sessions including a 101 of LGBTI+ diversity in sport and will seek to provide all participants with the skills, tools, and resources to further increase inclusion of the LGBTI+ community in their club or association.
The program is evidence based from the LGBTI+ community and research by the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living at Victoria University.
