Jennifer Owen-Adams – Independent, Senior Director
Originally from Ceredigion, now living in Powys, Jennifer’s professional background for over 30 years is in secondary, further and higher education and the Third Sector across England and Wales. She is currently the Director of Wales and the West Midlands for the education charity Teach First. Wherever Jennifer has been, cricket has always been a part of her life to varying degrees since early childhood and wanting more people to fall, and stay in love with cricket is a large part of why she first got involved with Cricket Wales.
Equality for all defines Jennifer’s approach to work and outlook on life generally; she is a firm believer that everyone deserves a fair chance to reach their potential; and she works tirelessly to take away the barriers which prevent some from achieving.
Being outdoors is key for Jenn; as is working with individuals and organisations to help build resilience and sustainability across rural communities. She is the inaugural Chair of Impelo, a dance organisation based in mid Wales whose reach extends across Wales and the UK, a Member of Glas Cymru and, as well an Independent Board Director for Cricket Wales. Jenn also sits on the ECB’s Participation and Growth committee. She is proud to chair Cricket Wales’ Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
