Mississippi Univ., University. Center for the Study of Contemporary Rural Women.
Goals of a project to design a career awareness workshop for vocational-technical students included identifying and defining sex stereotypes and discrimination, increasing student awareness of stereotyping, increasing knowledge of career options, exposing students to non-traditional role models, and providing inservice training. A literature and media review and series of interviews with students, teachers, counselors, and administrators regarding job aspirations and attitudes toward sex equity were used in developing the two-day sex equity workshop, with accompanying instructional materials, media presentations, and simulation game (Job Steps). A statewide demonstration of the workshop was given at Tupelo High School, Mississippi. Day 1 of the workshop included introduction of goals and format, "The Fable of He and She" (film), "Realities of the World of Work" (sound-slide presentation with handouts), and "Job Steps." Among experiences of day 2 were "You Can Be More" (sound-slide presentation), Career Exploration Activities (small groups), "The Women's Game" (film and accompanying activity), "American Man: Tradition and Change, Part I" (sound-filmstrip), "Non-Traditional Careers for Women, Part II" (sound-filmstrip), Browsing Room Facility, and "Job Steps."
