Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational and Adult Education.
The Ohio NEW (Nontraditional Employment for Women) Team is a collaborative team of public and private agencies that was formed in 1993 to promote nontraditional careers for women in Ohio by offering information on nontraditional career choices to all female customers served in Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) programs with other partner agencies and community programs. The project was implemented in three phases as follows: community capacity building workshops; development of NEW action plans in all 30 Ohio service delivery areas (SDAs); and implementation of the action plans. The Ohio NEW Team marketing committee created a marketing kit that contained software, a video, and print materials. The kit was distributed to SDAs for use in promoting nontraditional careers. The NEW Team has also developed mechanisms for continuing to pursue its goal of increasing the numbers of Ohio women in nontraditional training and employment by providing the following forms of technical assistance to SDAs: statewide training and review meeting; midpoint reviews of the SDAs and dissemination of the results to all 30 SDAs; and publication of equity newsletters and issue papers. (Summaries of the activities of the NEW Teams in each SDA are included.) (MN)
