Professional Cricketers' Association Appoints Its First Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Director, and It's None Too Soon

Within the last five hours has come the superb news from The Professional Cricketers'​ Association (PCA) that they have appointed Former Olympic Sprinter Donna Fraser OBE OLY (she/her) as the organisation's first Director of #Diversity#Equity and #Inclusion.

There's been a rallying cry across the #sport sector for creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive environment, with the PCA front and centre to such calls as an association which must do better. However, without a clear and concerted approach combined with strong #leadership to steward real change, the organisation has been hard-pressed to make good ground.

Donna Fraser OBE has not only competed multiple times in the #Olympics#World Championships, Europeans, and Commonwealth Games but also brings a pedigree of corporate, non-profit, governmental and #sporting expertise to the fold with her last appointment as Head of Inclusion and #Engagement for the 2022 #Commonwealth Games a consummate launchpad for her Directorship with the PCA.

Here's to the PCA for appointing Donna Fraser OBE. And here's to Donna Fraser OBE's success as she takes forward her skill and her will to build a better #future for the PCA, the broader cricketing #community and for all of us, as she champions the PCA #DEI agenda.
