The New Workforce.
Cox, Diana Hester, Ed.; And Others
Journal of the American Association of Women in Community and Junior Colleges, 1992
The annual Journal of the American Association of Women in Community and Junior Colleges (AAWCJC) publishes articles on research, model programs, and teaching/learning strategies of interest to women staff and students in community, junior, and technical colleges. It provides a forum for the discussion of issues related to women in higher education and disseminates information on leadership training activities. This theme issue, entitled "The New Workforce," explores the implications for community college women of a "new workforce" in which 85% of all workers entering the labor market between now and the year 2000 will be women, minorities, and immigrants. The issue contains the following articles: (1) "How Workforce 2000 Will Effect Women in Community Colleges," by Ruth Tarver; (2) "Let's Get Rid of Management: The Four C's of Leadership in the Community College," by Desna L. Wallin; (3) "The Work of Women in Community Colleges: Questions of Leadership in Solitude and in Community," by Joanne E. Cooper; (4) "Ethics in Academe," by Doric Little; and (5) "An Analysis of Gender Differences in Position Pathing of Community College Presidents," by Sally Winship and Marilyn Amey. The journal also contains two book reviews, one by Kathy Nelson of Helen S. Astin and Carole Leland's "Women of Influence, Women of Vision"; and one by Linda J. Hughes of Beth Milwid's "Working with Men: Professional Women Talk about Power, Sexuality and Ethics." Brief statements of the history and philosophy of AAWCJC conclude the issue. (JSP)
