Planning Human Resource Development through Equal Opportunities. A Handbook.
This handbook is intended for managers who wish to develop human resources in their organizations, particularly where women are currently underrepresented. It provides a positive model for the successful equal opportunities manager and a checklist of activities that will lead to the successful implementation of equal opportunities. The handbook sets out a logical sequence of recommended tasks for the development of an equal opportunities policy. The 11 steps are as follows: (1) management activities--the first stage; (2) management activities--the second stage; (3) the monitoring process; (4) the staff development program; (5) the equal opportunities training program for staff; (6) recruitment, appointment, and promotion of women; (7) the management development training program; (8) the facilities required for implementation of equal opportunities; (9) a model for curriculum development; (10) marketing and publicity; and (11) management activities--the third stage. A statement of principle and a list of the tasks the manager should carry out to translate the principle into effective practice are provided for each step. Appendixes include two articles, "Equality in the College: The Legal Position" (Chris Fernie) and "How to Set Up and Implement an Equal Opportunities Policy" (Helen Clarke). A sample opportunities policy document is also provided. (YLB)
