Manama,  (BNA)– Within the framework of the constant cooperation and coordination between the Ministry of Social Development and the Supreme Council for Women (SCW) and as a part of a plan to activate the Equal Opportunities Unit (EOU) at the Ministry of Social Development’s projects and programmes, the members of EOU held several meetings aiming to strengthen the Unit’s efforts and activate its hard work which has gone on over the past years, as well as the assignment of Bahija Al Dailami as a Training and Development Advisor at SCW.

The Coordination and Follow-up Advisor and Head of the EOU Waleed Baqer said that Al Dailami will cooperate with the Unit’s members through holding intensive meetings for all the workers in the Ministry of Social Development to raise awareness on the concepts on the integration of women’s needs and achieving equality in services and developmental projects, as well as establishing an EOU in all Ministries and Establishments.

Al Dailami said that Bahrain is considered a pioneer in the field of equal opportunities, benefiting from regional and international experiences.

Social Development Ministry was the first among Bahrain’s ministries to establish an Equal Opportunities Unit in October 2010, within the SCW’s plan for the advancement of Bahraini women and with the approval of the Cabinet.
