Unitary councils in Wales have been urged to support a nationwide campaign for sexual equality in the workplace by setting policies designed to encourage more women back to work, The Western Mail reports (p3).

The Chwarae Teg organisation is calling for the new authorities to sign up as partners in a drive to help women realise their potential in the Welsh economy.

Speakers at its first annual conference and annual general meeting in Llandrindod Wells yesterday included chief executive of the Local Government management Board Judith Hunt and the director of the Equal Opportunities Commission Val Field.

Chwarae Teg director Jane Hutt said: 'Despite excellent progress there is still a long way to go in making a real impact which will benefit women, their families and communities and the Welsh economy as a whole. The new unitary authorities are an essential ingredient if we are to have that real and lasting impact.'

She said that the next few months in the run up to the takeover of services was crucial - giving authorities the chance to embody Chwarae Teg's aims and objectives as they establish their own policies and methods of working, the Mail reports.
