About Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work

Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® program goes beyond the average practice of "shadowing" an adult. Exposing girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future, and allowing them to begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success.

For close to 20 years, our development of new, interactive activities and partnerships has helped us in taking girls and boys to the future they dream of.

A recent year's theme was "Building Partnerships To Educate and Empower." Numerous partnerships are required to make this day a success, and students will be encouraged to see the partnerships in their own lives now and in the future. Educating children about work, career opportunities, themselves, and the work/family balance is what Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day has always been about. This empowers children to make more informed choices about careers and families. Children begin to see who or what empowers them in their own lives.  

By bringing girls and boys together, we all contribute to creating a more equitable world—at home, at school, and in the workplace. This year we are celebrating the opportunities that girls and boys will discover and the opportunities for parents, mentors, and the community to continue involvement in this unique educational experience.
