New EOC Chair Announced


Alan Johnson, Trade and Industry Secretary of State has announced the appointment of Jenny Watson as the Chair of the Equal Opportunities.

Watson who has been Acting Chair since July 2005 said the post would be a ‘privilege as well as a great responsibility.’

"On the thirtieth anniversary of the Sex Discrimination Act, the need to keep sex equality at the top of the political agenda is as pressing as ever before. Our statutory powers to research and investigate sex discrimination, as well as to take legal cases and lead a debate on sex equality, make us a powerful force,” she said.

Of Watson’s selection Johnson said: “I am confident that under Jenny’s leadership the Commission will continue to be an influential force.”
