IAEVG has a long history of interest in vocational guidance and its influence on equality of educational and vocational opportunity. It is with great pleasure that we have prepared this report in line with that tradition. We want to express our thanks to Stuart Conger, IAEVG Vice President, for his invaluable help in providing suggestions about the study design and country sites, and in drafting the recommendations section of this report. In addition, we appreciate the interest and commitment of Professor José Ferreira Marques, President of IAEVG.

We also thank the Board of Directors of the National Career Development Association and Jane Goodman, NCDA President in 1994-95 and Dennis Engels, President in 1995-96 for their support. The Board was impressed with the extent to which this study supported NCDA's mission of promoting career development across the life span and its long-standing interest in educational and occupational equity for girls and women.

The translation assistance provided by Geannina Guzman for the materials from Argentina, Mexico, and Spain is appreciated. Ms Guzman is completing her PhD at the Ohio State University, and is particularly interested in politics and strategies for ensuring women's participation in a global economy. Finally, we thank Sandra Kerka, Associate Director, ERIC Clearinghouse on Adult, Career and Vocational Education for her editorial assistance.
