Bring those little ones to the office for a day! Pace University's Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Day (TODAS), which will be held on Thursday, April 27, is based upon the national campaign, Take Our Daughters to Work Day. This special event gives children the opportunity to go to work with their parent or guardian.
Children will participate in a variety of activities throughout the day, which will kick off on both campuses with a breakfast and welcome address. For more information, the schedule of events on both campuses, and to register, visit the registration page.
