Programs, services, and activities initiated by a project designed to meet special community needs arising out of the changing roles and expectations of men and women are described in this report. During 1986-87, 245 individuals participated in the project's program activities. Program objectives included the following: assess and define barriers to equity; understand how stereotypes are developed and how to build new images; become aware of new strategies for women as leaders; suggest solutions to equity barriers; understand the benefits of a positive image; discuss ways to eliminate sexism; and make students aware of opportunities. Activities included a seminar, "Women Leaders in Today's World"; a session, "Factors Affecting the Career Decision Making Process" for the High School Career Day at Ashland Community College; a "Women in Management" networking luncheon; establishment of a resource center for sex equity materials; and workshop on a "Bill of Rights for Men and Women." Program evaluations indicated that activities were well presented and valuable.
