Equity Leadership Project. Final Report. FY 1990-91.
Riley, Linda L.
The Equity Leadership Project provided technical assistance, coordination, training, and resources to equity projects developed in the process of implementing the Wisconsin Model for Sex Equity in Career and Vocational Education. The project served 108 school districts. The project's focus was on training regional equity leaders responsible for assisting local district staff in implementing the model. Training included providing trainees with resources, skills, and knowledge for building commitment and direction; assessing equity in the local school district; and developing and implementing long-range equity plans. A needs assessment was developed and conducted to identify specific needs. As a result, assistance was provided on the assessment process, surveying procedures, processing and analysis of data, and other equity related issues. Further assistance was given on developing agendas and content for presentations on equity issues to local school districts and community and professional groups. Recommendations were made for continuing training in gender equity issues. (Appendixes, which make up 90 percent of the document, include a composite report of student career surveys, a list of project participants, meeting agendas and evaluations, and two project newsletters.)
