We Celebrated Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day

The workplace tradition of taking our daughters and sons to work day is almost 25 years old. This annual celebration asks that participating parents be “agents for change” for their kids. The Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Foundation also wants parents to show kids how work is important to their daily lives, and not just a source of income. The day was created to inspire children to have big dreams, in whatever occupation they want to pursue.

The Powerline Group also participated in Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day this past April 26th, and was visited by the adorable Cadence Goldstein, daughter of Digital Marketing Director, April Jimenez. As you can see, she was put to work immediately and revised a keyword list for our SEO marketing efforts in no time. Go, Cadence!

Experiencing a workplace environment gives children so many advantages: faces to names they may have heard at home, a general sense of what mom and dad do every day, and snacks…lots of snacks.

One of the most common questions children are asked is, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?” According to a Fatherly.com survey in 2015, pro athlete, doctor, teacher and veterinarian were at the top of the list.

But in 2018, a new report states that girls are more likely to dream of STEM careers (science, technology, engineering and math). Good news! Girls today should be changing the narrative on how big they can dream. The bad news? Parents fall to third place in the list of kid’s influencers, behind YouTubers.

And although kids have a limited sense of the scope of the different jobs available, Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day gives them a small sense of how their parents spend their day. Thanks for visiting, Cadence – come back anytime!
