Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1977 
67 p. 

Based on meetings held by the Women's Bureau in Baltimore, Boston, and Miami to explore the employment-related problems of women offenders and to propose solutions, this report in Part I describes the development and conduct of these three seminars, in Part II gives instructions for the organization of future such community programs, and in Part III contains samples of conference materials as well as a resource directory. Three objectives are recognized for the local meetings: (1) to identify and assess the employment needs of women offenders both in the institution and the community; (2) to share information with the general public and government and private agencies about these needs and to establish a communication network and closer coordination among these agencies; and (3) to encourage communities to develop plans to improve services relating to the employment of female offenders. Further, in Part I, the four phases of the program design used at the three sites (assessment, developmental, activity, and followup action) are identified and differences are noted for each city; and in Part II, these four phases are outlined generally to provide a model for community development of similar conferences. Conclusions drawn from the meetings in the three cities show deficiencies in the following areas associated with the vocational education of women offenders: education, job training, resocialization, and job-readiness courses in penal institutions; work in state-use industries; work-release programs; employer and union involvement; long-termers' participation in vocational programs; linkage between correctional institutions and community and government agencies; and elimination of barriers imposed by state laws.
