A Letter from The Executive Director

Executive Director Carolyn McKecuenGreetings!

Welcome to the 2021 Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day® Virtual Event. The Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation, administrator of the program, is delighted to bring a new opportunity to create an enriching educational experience for our nation’s daughters and sons. Since 1993, 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.

As plans are underway for this year’s event on April 22, 2021, we want to be part of moving forward towards a more positive future. TODASTW is planning to tap into technologies that have brought the world together during this time of increased isolation by offering a hybrid virtual option with both live and pre-recorded resources.

We have a program with content focused on children, parents and their teachers to allow them to participate from school, home or wherever they are. We are working various options, including live speakers, videos, showing different jobs, Q&A sessions, and interactive features.

We welcome engagement from companies and businesses that want to participate with sponsorship and workplace virtual tours. We also plan to provide resources for those companies that may be in a position to host in-person programs.

This new approach will allow us to reach more children no matter their location or access to their parents’ employers. As a result, we will be able to stay true to our mission of creating more equitable opportunities for children to experience different workplaces and career options.

If you’re ready, let’s begin Building Partnerships To Educate And Empower in order to shape the future for Boldly Moving Forward.

Warm Regards,

Carolyn McKecuen
Executive Director
