Thomas, Ann G.; Hitchens, Donna J.
These materials are intended to provide a workshop design for conducting a one-day training program for representatives of community groups who are, or want to become, involved with helping to promote sex equity within the vocational education system. The workshop is designed (1) to provide representatives of community groups with background information on the California system of Vocation Education and the current progress and problems relating to sex equity within that system; (2) to increase understanding of the legal requirements imposed on educational institutions to eliminate sex bias; (3) to share information among participants about efforts currently being made by community groups around issues affecting non-traditional work; (4) to increase understanding of the process and dynamics of change; and (5) to plan follow-up strategies for furthering sex equity in vocational education within local communities. Included in the workshop materials are a planning guide; suggested workshop schedule; guidelines and resources for implementing the workshop; registration materials; pre-workshop packet with information on federal legislative requirements; and worksheets.
