Five dynamic staff members join twenty-one appointed volunteer commissioners to work to eliminate sex discrimination in Connecticut. They are to inform leaders about the nature and scope of discrimination, to serve as a liaison between government and private interest groups concerned with services for women, to promote considerations of women for governmental positions, and to work with state agencies to assess programs and practices as they affect women.
