Massachusetts Univ., Amherst.
Presented in this manual is a one-week training program designed to help women's organizations (campus-based centers and other organizations) address needs related to power and leadership, organizational development, program and budget planning, and negotiation and communication skills. The guide is divided into eleven sections dealing with the following: (I) an overview of the training program; (II) orientation, including scheduling and materials; (III) leadership and power; (IV) organizational issues; (V) case studies of women's organizations for use in conjunction with participants' planning and budget exercises; (VI) program development; (VII) budget development and negotiation; (VIII) notes on the use of games and exercises for a session on collaboration and cooperation; (IX) communication skills; (X) a simulation and seminar session which provides participants with practice presenting program and budget proposals and receiving feedback; and (XI) a collection of participant handouts, which makes up approximately 25 percent of the document. Presented in appendices are an evaluation of the project's effectiveness, a history of its evolution, evaluation questionnaires, a list of regional site administrators and trainers, and data on the status and needs of campus-based women's centers in the United States.
