A Model Program for Sex Equity in Vocational Education. Final Report from July 1, 1982 to June 30, 1983.
Bromley, Ann; Lanza-Kaduce, Linda
The sex equity program at Santa Fe Community College in Florida has become instrumental in an ongoing reeducation process in making people aware of the numerous career opportunities available to them and in dispelling myths about sex role stereotyping in the world of work. Included among the goals and objectives of the program are the following: to increase awareness of career choices in vocational education with particular emphasis on nontraditional careers for men and women, to increase the recruitment of individuals into nontraditional vocational programs, to continue to educate students and others about nontraditional vocational careers, to provide supportive and job services to students enrolled in nontraditional vocational education programs at Santa Fe Community College, and to plan and implement specialized short-term technical training programs in cooperation with local industry. To meet the needs of target populations, such as displaced homemakers, minorities, and disadvantaged persons, project staff provided a variety of services, including career and personal counseling, workshops, employability skills training, and general education development (GED) preparation. During the past year, 75 percent of the 50 individuals who attended the project's video game and vending machine repair program were hired into entry-level positions earning more than minimum wage. Furthermore, graduates from previous project-developed training programs continue to be placed. (MN)
