FICA has released its Women’s Global Employment Report 2020. The report follows FICA’s 2018 Women’s Global Employment Report and men’s report released last August. It includes key findings and recommendations, based on:
The report includes a set of eight recommendations relating to:
“Women’s cricket has made significant gains which were on display at the recent T20 World Cup final. Players, administrators and national boards around the world need to continue to work together and invest heavily in building on this to capitalise on the hard work of those who have laid the platform, create a new normal, and to ensure the women’s game isn’t ever an afterthought....Let’s keep working together to ensure the women’s game uses the platform it has created to go to the next level."
FICA Chief Executive, Tom Moffat said:
“These reports are an important part of FICA’s work tracking global developments against key metrics. Players are central to the future success of the game and it has been pleasing to see further recent progress. There is a long way to go to ensure the fundamentals are in place around the world though and we want to see targeted and specific action to ensure more playing opportunity, that gender equity principles are imbedded in the game, and that player rights are respected at global level and across countries.”
FICA produces its men’s and women’s global employment reports on a bi-annual basis. This report is retrospective covering the 2018/19 report period and FICA acknowledges more recent progress and developments in several countries including England and Wales.
