This guide is intended to help state sex equity coordinators learn more about adult women's life experiences and the skills, knowledge, and abilities they develop through them.

Chapter 1 overviews life experience learning, while chapter 2 describes typical life experiences of adult women. Chapter 3 reviews research on job relevance of women's experiential learning. Chapter 4 outlines a process for employer use in identifying adult women with job-relevant experience and skills. Implementation of the process is detailed in chapters 5-8. Chapter 5 focuses on occupation/ job analysis involving identifying job skills, rating job skills, and deciding hiring requirements. In chapter 6 are discussed selection and use of assessment methods to determine if adult women have the necessary type and level of skill. Chapter 7 focuses on recruitment. Chapter 8 discusses monitoring and evaluating the job performance of women placed. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the guide, include Project ACCESS Experience Description Summary form, job analysis guide, employment assessment rating form, and employee rating form.
