Who likes change? We all do when it is positive and makes the whole team better. Being an agent for POSITIVE change impacts everyone around you. You may turn to family, friends, teammates, teachers and mentors to help but real change happens when you decide to assist others.

Being a part of a workplace team means you are there to support both internal and external customers. By doing the best you can and looking for ways to be agents of POSITIVE change you help make the workplace more successful.

Agents of POSITIVE change take advantage of the opportunities that come their way. They work hard to ensure the future is brighter for everyone.

Message From Our Executive Director

2017 was a spectacular year, but we expect 2018 will be even better!

Carolyn McKecuenGreetings!

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 24 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 2018 Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day program and celebrating our 25th anniversary!

Warm regards,
