Employment Equity Policies and Practices in Ontario School Boards.
Rees, Ruth
The research, based on a March 1988 survey of all Ontario school boards (board and separate), was an attempt to identify and synthesize boards' employment equity/affirmative action policies and practices--in order to ensure that, ultimately, women are more equitably represented within the management positions in education. The findings of 52 boards for both policies and practices were categorized into four areas: (1) general and broad statements on employment equity; (2) statements specifically intended to assist women; (3) statements concerning hiring/recruitment/selection issues; and (4) statements aimed at eliminating systemic discrimination. The intention of this research was to provide this wealth of employment equity initiatives as an encouragement to other school boards, and to focus attention on the two diverse types of employment equity strategies: getting more women into those positions of added responsibility and keeping more women in those same positions.
