We’re setting ourselves for an action-packed summer as Principal Partner of Perth Scorchers for the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL).
Kleenheat and the Scorchers share strong values across diversity and inclusion, with the Scorchers’ mission to ensure cricket is established and recognised as a sport for all Australians – especially women and girls – aligning with our commitment to growing leadership opportunities for women.
Kleenheat General Manager, Mark Gadsby, said going into bat with the Perth Scorchers was a unique opportunity to continue growing women’s cricket across Western Australia.
“As WA’s local energy provider, we’re excited to power the Perth Scorchers’ second big season in the Women’s Big Bash League”, he said.
“Like the Scorchers, Kleenheat already has runs on the board and big ambitions for the future – including our commitment to drive gender equality in business and the community.
“We’re excited about energising women’s cricket in WA and helping inspire the next generation of Scorchers.”
The men’s Scorchers will also have our support as match day sponsor for the 2016/17 Big Bash League (BBL) season.
Census figures for 2015-16 showed cricket’s pursuit of inclusion has led to the sport nearing gender parity among school-aged participants in WA. Female participation has leapt 26% and almost 52,000 girls and women now play the game across the state.
WACA CEO, Christina Matthews, commended Kleenheat’s focus on diversity and encouraging people to reach their full potential within the organisation and through community programs.
“Kleenheat is also committed to growing the number of women in leadership roles, to which the WACA and Scorchers are equally committed both on and off the field”, she said.
“We aim to increase female participation and representation across all levels of cricket and pivotal to achieving that is the support of organisations such as Kleenheat.
The WBBL season gets underway this Saturday 10 December with the Hobart Hurricanes hosting the Perth Scorchers, while the BBL begins Friday 23 December with a big clash between the Perth Scorchers and the Adelaide Strikers at the WACA.
