Business and Management Development Training Program for Hispanic Women. Final Report.
Miranda (L.) and Associates, Bethesda, MD.
A program was conducted to develop and motivate minority women, in particular Hispanic origin women, in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area to participate in business ownership and management. Offered at no cost to participants, the training program sought to equip potential managers with information and techniques in the fundamental management skills common to functioning competently in a business ownership, corporate management, or personal life management situation. Trainees learned functional skills in motivation and personal development, communications, essentials of management process, and financial management. Field study was incorporated in the overall training program. The course consisted of fifteen sessions (sixty hours, including the field training). Forty-nine participants started the course and forty-three completed it, representing an 87 percent retention rate. Evaluations indicated that participants' needs were addressed; levels of enthusiasm and participation were markedly high; content and materials were considered extremely valuable and practical; learned concepts were applied; and individual participants experienced attitudinal and behavioral changes. Appendixes include a needs assessment, examples of handouts, a bibliography, a sample student module, evaluations, and examples of media coverage. (Author/LMS)
