TODASTW's Inspirational Speaker - Misty Copeland

Misty Copeland is a renowned ballerina with the American Ballet Theatre. She started ballet at the age of 13, an age considered too old, and many people doubted her abilities and body type as unsuitable for a ballerina. Misty, however, overcame all challenges and became a renowned dancer with the prestigeous American Ballet Theatre.

Message From Our Executive Director

2014 was a spectacular year, but we expect 2015 will be even better!


The Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation is delighted to bring you another opportunity to create an enriching educational experience for our nation’s daughters and sons. For over 22 years, individuals, families, organizations, and workplaces have joined in the Day to expand opportunities and transform the lives of millions of girls and boys both nationally and internationally.

Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work program goes beyond the average “shadow” 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, and providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future and begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success. Each year, we develop new interactive activities and partnerships that will assist us in taking girls and boys to the future they dream of.

By bringing girls and boys together, we will continue to create a more equitable world—at home, at school, in the workplace, and in the community. 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.

I look forward to the 2015 Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day program and celebrating our 22nd anniversary!

Warm regards,
