Career Planning Programs for Women Employees: Prototype Programs. Research and Development Series No. 137.
Vetter, Louise; And Others
A project was conducted to develop three prototype comprehensive career planning programs and to offer those prototypes as models that could be used by both educators and personnel directors who are interested in helping employed women improve their occupational status. A national survey of programs in operation in community and junior colleges and in business and industry provided the basis for the development of a modified delphi instrument that was submitted to a panel of experts for their evaluation and recommendations. Instrument items consisted of possible career planning activities and various procedures for facilitating the implementation of a career planning program. Among the panel's conclusions were these: (1) a majority of the individual career planning activities are considered to be very important for inclusion within any programmatic effort to assist employed women in their career planning and developmental goals, and (2) those career planning activities that seem to be directed more at improving the knowledge and skills of employed women were judged to be more important than those various activities that related to women's individual personal needs. Development suggestions for career planning programs for employed women make up the bulk of the document. (CT)
