Management Training Programs of Women and Minorities. Survey. Increasing Participation of Women and Minorities in Education R&D.
Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
Based on the assumption that educational research and development (R&D) requires the same technical managerial skills as any other business organization, this survey examined fifty management training programs for women and/or minorities in eighteen business, academic, and industrial settings. Information gathered on courses, workshops, and seminars especially designed for women and/or minorities is compiled by institution in Appendix A. The subjects of these programs are then divided into twenty-four categories in Appendix B, and three participant levels (interested, entry-level, and established) are indicated; this format is used to highlight the areas of need as well as the available sources. It was concluded that (1) management training programs rarely address the needs of women and/or minorities; (2) courses directed toward female managers are usually aimed at entry-level positions; (3) vital topics, such as finance and budgeting, professional development, power and management, managing time, and assertiveness training, are neglected in these programs; and (4) in general, management is a new and experimental field for women and minorities.
