Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day
On Thursday, April 24, HR invites you to participate in a national campaign that gives children, ages 8 through 15, the opportunity to go to work with a parent instead of going to school for one day. The purpose of the program is to encourage, inspire, and introduce girls and boys across the country to the workplace and empower them to dream without gender limitations and think imaginatively about their family, work, and community lives. Members of the Pace University Community are encouraged to bring their daughters, sons, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews.
Children will participate in a variety of activities throughout the day beginning with a breakfast and welcome address. They will also spend time with you in your office. HR will be posting the schedule of events for each campus at HR NEWS. Participants must register no later than April 18. For more information about the day and to register your child, click here.
