This curriculum addendum was developed to offer suggestions and strategies to change mindsets and remove barriers in order to pave the way for a gender-equitable, technically trained work force beginning at the elementary and middle school levels. The guide contains 73 strategies, a variety of examples of how they can be implemented, and a large assortment of print, video, and agency resources to assist teachers in implementing these strategies. The guide is organized into eight sections by duties, with several tasks for each duty area.

The following topics are covered by the duties: (1) eliminate internal barriers; (2) eliminate sex role stereotyping; (3) provide survival skills for trades and technical women and men; (4) create support systems; (5) eradicate external barriers; (6) remove discriminatory behavior at all levels in schools and the workplace (co-workers and students); (7) deliver career education and exploration; and (8) deliver workplace literacy.
