Improving Sex Equity in Postsecondary Vocational/Technical Programs: A Resource Manual.
Lovelace, Bill E.; And Others
This manual was developed to assist postsecondary administrators, faculty, staff, and students by providing materials specifically designed to eliminate sex bias and stereotyping of students and to recruit students into nontraditional careers and vocational-technical programs. The manual is organized in six sections. The first section introduces the problem of sex discrimination in education and employment and substantiates the need for methods of promoting sex equity. Section II documents the process of becoming aware of the need for sex equity, and Section III provides a program model for planning a program to promote sex equity in vocational education. Section IV outlines the role of the counselor; Section V presents strategies for creating a program to improve sex equity. The final section lists resources, such as agencies, articles and periodicals, books, films, pamphlets, videos, and contacts that can be useful in building a sex-fair vocational education program. Extensive appendixes contain materials for use in workshops on sex equity. (KC)
