Implementing the Indiana Model. Indiana Leadership Consortium: Equity through Change.
Indiana Leadership Consortium.
This guide, which was developed as a part of a multi-year, statewide effort to institutionalize gender equity in various educational settings throughout Indiana, presents a step-by-step process model for achieving gender equity in the state's secondary- and postsecondary-level vocational programs through coalition building and implementation of a change process that infuses gender equity concepts and practices into existing programs and policies. Discussed in the overview are the following: the manual's purpose and contents; the purpose and components of the Indiana model; and the purpose, membership, and operation of the leadership consortium responsible for overseeing the model's implementation. The following topics are covered in the section on impact sites: staffing roles and responsibilities, local action plans, institutional changes, the student model, infusion strategies, and implementation of the model at the various impact sites. A chart detailing mentoring activities conducted at selected demonstration sites is provided. Presented in a section devoted to technical assistance are an overview of the 3-year training agenda for leadership consortium members and a series of conclusions and recommendations based on information gathered by those individuals actually implementing the model and those affected by the project. Concluding the guide are a glossary and maps to the equity and change demonstration sites. (MN)
