Labour Minister Margaret Wilson and Women’s Affairs Minister Ruth Dyson today announced a new Public Sector appointment to the Board of the Equal Employment Opportunities Trust.

The appointment of Peter Hughes will bring the composition of the EEO Trust Board to three males and four females, and bring the number of public sector positions on the EEO Trust Board to four.
