Adelante, Mujer Hispana: A Conference Model for Hispanic Women. Pamphlet 20.
Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
The model is based on the highly successful first Women's Bureau sponsored Colorado Education and Employment Conference for Hispanic Women ("Adelante, Mujer Hispana") held in January 1980 for low-income women seeking employment and employed women seeking better jobs and upward mobility. It is intended for use by groups and individuals in planning and implementing similar community-based women's conferences. The model describes the Colorado conference's themes and goals and explains how to organize a similar conference. It includes complete directions and occasional cautions for setting conference goals and themes, selecting a conference coordinator and planning committee, establishing committee responsibilities, preparing a workplan, planning the program and supporting activities, choosing the date and the site, obtaining and accounting for funds, and involving the community. Appendices include samples of a conference workplan, pre- and post-conference press releases, agendas, preliminary flyers, confirmation and follow-up letters, registration and evaluation forms, and reception invitations. Copies of actual newspaper articles, workshop topics, letters, and invitations from "Adelante, Mujer Hispana" are also included. (SB)
