Affirmative Action for Women: Diagnostic Report.
Developed as part of a government-sponsored project to encourage and facilitate the voluntary implementation of affirmative action for women at Vanier College in Montreal, Canada, this report analyzes the current status of female employees at the institution. Chapter I discusses the college's commitment to affirmative action, the problem of systematic discrimination, and the legal bases and objectives of affirmative action programs. In addition, this chapter offers a brief history of the college and a description of its administrative and instructional structures. Chapter II presents a statistical portrait of Vanier's employees, including employment figures for top administrators (cadres), lower-level management positions (gerants), non-teaching professionals, faculty, and support staff. The chapter concludes by identifying the employment categories and disciplines in which women were concentrated. After chapter III identifies the jobs in which women were underrepresented at Vanier, based on the availability of qualified women in the labor force, chapter IV describes the college's policies and practices with respect to recruitment and selection, employment and salary classifications, employee training and professional development, evaluation, promotion, working conditions and employee benefits, and personnel planning. Chapter V presents study findings concerning the perceptions and recommendations of Vanier's faculty and staff with regard to these policies and practices. Finally, chapter V presents a series of recommendations for Vanier's affirmative action program. (AAZC)
