Wisconsin Technical College System Board Equity Staff Development Workshops and Services--Phase V. Final Report.
The Wisconsin Technical College System Board Phase V Equity Staff Development project continued staff development efforts to eliminate bias and stereotyping in vocational education. Based upon evaluations indicating a need for a postsecondary equity training model, five technical college equity representatives attended two planning sessions to discuss strategies for development of an equity action research model. A vision statement, mission statements, and goals were formulated. Following two meetings, the project director developed a draft course, Creating an Inclusive Educational Environment (CIEE). Consensus of focus groups was that a great impact on equity awareness had occurred as a result of the adapted Gender/Ethnic Expectations and Student Achievement course and this effort should be continued. Four technical colleges conducted staff development training classes with 56 participants. An Equity Action Research Workshop was offered as a preconference to the Governor's Employment and Training Conference in April 1996. This workshop provided opportunities for 44 persons in the trades, technical colleges, and community-based organizations to discuss programs designed to increase and support women's employment in the skilled trades. (Appendixes include the following: CIEE rationale, vision statement, course outline, and lesson plans; focus group discussions; and Wisconsin Nontraditional Employment for Women Roundtable Meeting agenda and discussion synopsis and notes.)
