Grengg, Dolores A., Ed.; Thompson, Mary B., Ed.
These proceedings consist of a summary of the presentations, recommendations, and outcomes of a conference held to assist minority women and men and nonminority women achieve leadership positions in Wisconsin's vocational, technical, and adult education (VTAE) system. Following a brief introduction and copy of the conference agenda, summaries are provided of the following presentations: "Knowledge is Power: Critical Information Every Aspiring Leader Should Know," by Dr. Frank Samuels; "Critical Administrative Skills--What Are They? How Do You Gain and Demonstrate Them?," by Elizabeth Rosandick; "Social/Role Dynamics of Leadership," by Eloise Anderson-Addison; "Identifying and Overcoming Barriers Created by Racism and Sexism," by Helen Barnhill; "Leadership Opportunities in VTAE," by Christine Nickel; and "Racial and Sexual Harassment," by Richard Harris, et al. Barriers to upward mobility in the VTAE system (in areas such as current job status, self-image, current skills, local affirmative action procedures, training opportunities, and hiring practices) are identified, and recommendations are made for removing these barriers by actions on the individual, district, and state levels. A tabulation of conference participant evaluations of the conference concludes the proceedings. (MN)
