Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work

Are you energetic, creative, and ready for a rewarding leadership opportunity? Then the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day committee needs you! The current committee is seeking additional members and new co-chairs for this annual campus- and nationwide event, which is Thursday, April 28. Not sure you can do it alone? Join with a colleague to co-chair a committee of volunteers in planning the day of events.

This commitment of one to two hours a week through April includes:

  • Generating new ideas for workshops

  • Coordinating workshops with faculty and staff

  • Obtaining donations from area merchants

  • Developing and assisting with development of a web site for the event

  • Working with UA administration to obtain funding

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in developing leadership skills, serving the campus and wider community, meeting new people, and in educating young people about future career and academic opportunities.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work was developed by the Ms. Foun­dation for Women and is designed to broaden the discussion about the competing challenges of work and family. At the University at Albany, we celebrate the day with a breakfast for parents and children, a series of workshops, time for job shadowing, and an ice cream social at the end of the day. Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is a registered trademark of the Ms. Foundation for Women.

For more information on how you can contribute to this campus-wide event, contact LaMonda Watson at lwatson1@uamail.albany.edu or 437-4761.
