VTAE Equity Staff Development Workshops and Services. Final Report.
Baldus, Lorayne; Nelson, Orville
The Center for Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education (VTAE) Staff Development Workshops and Services project was designed to provide technical support and training to selected VTAE personnel in techniques for implementing equity programs, establish a statewide advisory committee to develop a long-range plan for infusing sex equity concepts into existing strategic planning and curriculum development activities throughout Wisconsin, and provide information on equity and diversity at a statewide sex equity conference. The project was conducted over a 7-month period. Two highly successful training sessions were conducted with 50 participants at each meeting. Eighteen persons took the project workshops for credit and submitted district action plans based on information gained during training. The action plans included sex equity issues, nontraditional training, counseling techniques, and minority equity issues. Many have already been implemented, and others are slated for implementation. Recommendations were made concerning development of a comprehensive equity strategic planning model. (Appended are as follows: a vocational equity planning strategies action plan, materials from the meeting of the sex equity advisory committee, and materials from workshops on the following topics: making friends with change, equity issues and strategies, and meeting the challenges of change. A list of proactive strategies for change agents is included.) (MN)
