Schafer, Susan P.
This manual is designed for the equity professional who wishes to increase the participation of women and minority groups in leadership roles in athletics. The model was developed by Educators for Athletic Equity (EAE) and provides a data and knowledge base necessary for implementing a successful athletic equity project. The specific goals outlined in the manual are to: (1) locate, train and support talented women and minorities with coaching, officiating and athletic leadership potential; (2) promote through motivation, support and training, competent coaches officials, athletic directors, and governing board members regardless of race, ethnicity, or sex; (3) sensitize and encourage organizations and employers to seek women and minorities for athletic leadership, training, placement and promotion; (4) promote the benefits of athletic leadership to students, educators, parents and community; (5) improve communication between school districts, the Colorado High School Activities Association, governing boards, professional associations, and higher education regarding the need for competent, equitable, balanced staffing of athletic programs; and (6) gather statewide data to define equity problems, direct actions, and to monitor progress.
