Improving Sex Equity. Final Report.
Lovelace, Bill E.; And Others
The University of North Texas, with the assistance of the equity coordinators of eight Texas public two-year postsecondary institutions, worked to improve sex equity programs throughout the state. First, the state's existing manual dealing with improving sex equity in postsecondary vocational-technical programs was updated to include materials detailing innovative practices that have been developed and proved effective by public community and technical colleges in Texas. Next, regional workshops were held in Houston, Corpus Christi, Austin, Fort Worth, Tyler, and Midland. More than 100 sex equity coordinators and career counselors participated in the workshops, which focused on improving sex equity programs and providing access and support to students desiring to enter nontraditional occupations. The updated resource manual was disseminated throughout the state, and personnel responsible for sex equity at secondary and postsecondary institutions were invited to plan for the articulation of secondary and postsecondary equity activities. (Appendixes constituting approximately 85% of this document include the following: data from the six workshops; workshop handouts; conference data; project flyers; a third-party evaluator's report; minutes of the advisory committee meetings, and a 63-page annotated bibliography of over 200 documents and journal articles available through ERIC.)
