VTAE Equity Staff Development Workshops and Services--Phase II. Final Report.
Baldus, Lorayne; Nelson, Orville
The Phase II Equity Staff Development project was revised in response to a need to develop an equity strategic planning model with a vision statement, goals, and objectives. The Equity Strategic Planning Model was presented to administrators of Wisconsin Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education (VTAE) colleges for their use in district strategic planning. One staff development workshop, featuring the best sex equity practices in the VTAE colleges, was conducted for 27 participants. This working conference was intended to assist colleges in identifying successful programs that promote gender equity issues within colleges and curriculum. Another revision consisted of two Career Challenge train-the-trainer workshops. This experiential training was conducted for 29 persons who directed programs that focused on recruiting women into nontraditional, technical and trade occupations. The course included the following: trust building activities, goal setting, problem solving, peak experiences, and environmental and ropes course challenge activities. Participants incorporated activities into existing programs for single parents, welfare recipients, displaced homemakers, and reentry programs. (The seven-page report is followed by these appendixes: materials from the best practices showcase, Equity Strategic Planning Model, Sex Equity Advisory Committee meetings agendas and minutes, information on the Gender/Ethnic Expectations and Student Achievement program, and workshop materials.)
