A Message from AOL and Arianna Huffington
AOL is thrilled to host over 1,400 students across 20 offices. As a company with a deep-seated commitment to empowering future leaders, we are proud to support such an important day. Arianna Huffington hosted last year’s opening remarks in NYC; here’s another message from her.
My name is Arianna Huffington, and I am the editor in chief of The Huffington Post. I want you to have a lot of fun at Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day, and I also have a little homework assignment for you — are you ready for it? — I want you to get enough sleep so that you can be the best you: healthier, better at everything you want to do, and happier. And I want you to help your mommies and daddies get more sleep. My girls often laugh as they remember me reading books to them to put them to sleep — through the years graduating from Dr. Seuss to Harry Potter — and falling asleep in mid-sentence. They used to shake me and say, “Wake up, Mom, wake up, Mom! Finish the story!’” Sound familiar?
I also want to give all of you a chance to see what it’s like to be a reporter. We have a new series called Talk to Me where kids get to interview their parents – you can ask them anything you want!. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will tell you how you can do it from anywhere!

2016 Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day Support Letter from President Obama
Our Nation’s progress has always been defined by the opportunities our youngest minds have to harness their creativity, indulge their curiosity, and make discoveries about the world around them. In showing these young people a multitude of career paths and the importance of public service, we offer them the chance to ignite their passions and broaden their horizons. On Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Day, we are reminded of the part we play – as parents, guardians, and role models – in inspiring coming generations to build a more innovative and inclusive future.
As workplaces across our country open their doors to young visitors on this special day, we wish everyone all the best.
