A Plan for Sex Equity in Postsecondary Vocational Programs, State of Hawaii.
Odo, Carol F.; Nakahara, Joyce Y.
Pilot projects to achieve sex equity in vocational programs at the community colleges of Hawaii have existed on an individual campus basis since 1977. The plan contained in this document continues the sex equity efforts of the community colleges and provides a new approach--based on systemwide coordination--to reducing sex bias and stereotyping in vocational programs. It seeks to effect a better balance of female and male students in programs that are nontraditional to their sex by integrating the efforts at all seven campuses. After an introduction to the Plan and its objectives in Section 1, Section 2 of this report describes the plan, specifying goals and objectives, and how to achieve them. Section 3 provides the rationale for the plan, i.e., an analysis and assessment of the problem including enrollment data, sex equity barriers, and pilot projects attempted that the plan is intended to address. In the last section, the actual documents and list of references reviewed in the problem assessment are included, along with suggested activities to promote sex equity in the college vocational education programs. Appendixes contain workshops and projects that can be replicated for use in carrying out the sex equity plan. (KC)
