In recent weeks
we have released two exciting new publications—a digest and a manual
for in-service training—that focus on some of the most important
gender equity issues today.
and Careers: Progress and Promise
Drawn from extensive research on career development issues and
trends in the 30 years since Title IX was enacted, this digest explores
how career choices—and especially the discarding of options—begin
at an early age. Girls need to begin exploring career options, including
nontraditional career paths, early in their school lives. This digest
offers career development strategies to engage all girls in career
development programs, discusses school reform efforts and the remaining
obstacles to improving school-to-career and vocational education
programs for girls and young women, and includes a list of resources
from WEEA and other organizations. To download a pdf copy, click

Several of the current projects funded by the WEEA program are working
to increase career options for women and girls (other programs are
listed in the publication Gender Matters). Click here
