In 1993, the Ms. Foundation for Women introduced Take Our Daughters to Work Day, a nationally recognized day for girls to explore various career opportunities. The aim was to empower young girls by allowing them to envision their future careers and to promote gender equality in the workforce.
In 2003, Take Our Daughters to Work Day expanded to become Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. The decision was made to include boys in the initiative, recognizing the importance of providing all children with the opportunity to learn about different professions and encourage their aspirations, regardless of gender.
In 2015, the name of the event was officially changed to Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work. This change reflected the desire to emphasize gender-neutral participation and equal opportunities for all children to explore career paths. The revised name aimed to recognize that both daughters and sons should benefit from experiencing the workplace environment.
Today, Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is celebrated annually on the fourth Thursday in April. It has become a significant event in many workplaces, schools, and communities. The day provides parents, guardians, and mentors the chance to expose children to a variety of occupations, inspiring them to dream big and set goals for their own future careers.
