Glover, Robert W.; Greenfield, Paula S.
This second annual report of the Minority Women Employment Program (MWEP), a consolidation and expansion of earlier black women employment programs, provides a description of project objectives, procedures, and results and draws conclusions and recommendations. The period covered is September 1975, to August 1976. Chapter 1 documents the need for the program, giving examples of labor market disadvantages faced by minority women. Chapter 2 covers the objectives for the project, explaining that the program is a demonstration effort involving seven metropolitan areas to apply outreach techniques in placing minority women into high quality managerial, technical, and professional jobs. Chapter 3 gives a description of the program's (1) operations components, i.e., recruitment of applicants; employer contact and job development; preparation and screening of applicants; placement followup; and community relations; and (2) research component, including information services for the staff and project evaluation. Chapter 4 describes the results of the project, reviewing the expansion of MWEP from two to seven cities; assesses project accomplishments, indicating the MWEP model is workable in varied settings with a variety of minority groups; notes its shortcomings; and records some of the learnings from the project to date. Chapter 5 presents conclusions and recommendations regarding project improvement and continuation. (EM)
