Historic Appointments Bolster Board’s Diversity

In a landmark move, Cricket West Indies (CWI) has infused new vigour into its board of directors, appointing three women as independent directors. The appointments, lasting until March 2025, mark a significant stride in CWI’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Experienced Trio Set to Make an Impact

The board welcomes Diann Campbell and Louise Victor-Frederick as fresh faces, alongside the return of Debra Coryat-Patton, who previously served from 2019 to 2021. Campbell, a renowned figure in Jamaican cricket circles, brings an impressive resume with nearly three decades of administrative experience. A board statement highlighted her “expertise in cricket administration, corporate governance, and organisational development will greatly benefit CWI’s strategic initiatives.” Victor-Frederick, hailing from Saint Lucia, is known for her prowess in branding and communications strategy. Coryat-Patton, rejoining the board, is poised to contribute her “invaluable legal expertise to the CWI Board.”

Leadership Comments on Diversity Goals

CWI President Kishore Shallow voiced his enthusiasm for the appointments, saying, “Since the beginning, I’ve advocated for diversity and inclusion within CWI to ensure fairness both on and off the field.” He emphasized that these appointments are “a natural progression of our ongoing commitment.” Shallow also expressed gratitude to outgoing independent directors, Manniram Prashad and Gail Mathurin, for their contributions, adding, “We anticipate their continued involvement and impact in other capacities.”

Shallow’s remarks underline CWI’s resolve in enhancing the game’s governance, ensuring that the board’s composition reflects the diverse and dynamic nature of West Indies cricket.
