Adult Women's Career Planning in a Liberal Arts College Utilizing Male and Female Counselors.
Khosh, Mary N.; Grimm, John E.
The evidence of numerous studies on women's roles and attitudes suggest that, at least historically, women have attitudinally agreed that women's place is in the home. However, more recent studies suggest a new trend in attitudes. Women have now assumed a pose of wanting to work, while at the same time they tend to cluster in traditionally female occupations and express uncertainty over the compatibility of the dual role. Baldwin-Wallace College, a liberal arts and pre-professional college of approximately 2,200 enrollment, has undertaken a program of career planning for adult women to assist them in understanding themselves, and their relationship to careers and occupations. Attitudinal and institutional changes cannot be accomplished by women alone. Since males play an influential role in the career development of women and are generally more credible to and have more impact upon established institutions, it is essential that men also become significantly involved in the facilitation of women's career development. The proposed presentation attempts to provide information about this on-going career program and the use of male and female counselors in the program by discussion and the experiential involvement of the audience.
