1977: Women in Management Workshops Presented at Capitol Campus
The Office of Continuing Education hosted the first Women in Management Workshop from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 10, 1977. The following March, the Continuing Education Office sponsored the Women in Management Conference, also an all-day event. These were designed to promote career planning and executive development for women, to discuss upper-level managerial and executive skill requirements, and raise awareness of barriers to advancement for women.
In the fall 1978 semester, the Continuing Education Office split the workshop into two day-long seminars. The first, held on October 26, was “Developing Your ‘High Level’ Potential,” which was designed to promote a proactive approach to career planning and executive development for women.
The second seminar, titled “Time Management,” was held on December 14. The seminar leaders used case studies, short lectures, audiovisuals, and handouts to focus on using time effectively and efficiently in everyday situations.
