Abstract:

In an effort to expand the utilization of women in nontraditional industrial careers, this report examines relevant managerial and personnel issues and develops recommendations for Air Force policies to deal with them. The report presents a comprehensive review of the literature, an annotated bibliography, data analysis from a pilot study of three corporations, and recommendations and conclusions for the above noted sources. These recommendations include suggestions a to perform an organizational audit to gather baseline data on Air Force policies affecting women and to identify where the biggest problem areas are b to focus part of the recruitment effort on women who are in their mid-to-late 20s c to emphasize the positive aspects of nontraditonal jobs such as good pay and job security d to offer extensive counseling to new recruits and enlisted women e to encourage those women with a reasonably high chance of success f to provide compensatory instruction mechanical and electronics information g to train women in groups of two or more h to sensitize key personnel to Air Force policies affecting women i to communicate Air Force policies concerning women in a highly visible manner and j to eliminate sexist language from all Air Force communications.
