UNLV’s Take Your Child to Work Day is based upon the national campaign Take Our Daughters to Work Day. The day exposes girls and boys to what a parent or mentor does during the workday. It also shows children the value of education and gives them a chance to experience various careers firsthand.
The event was founded in 1993 by Gloria Steinem and the Ms. Foundation for Women and is celebrated annually on the fourth Thursday of April.
We welcome you and your child to participate in any or all of our events on this day. If you are participating, please complete the Voluntary Activity Waiver and return to the Family Advocacy Committee (Attn: Shellie Brattain), mailstop 1050 by April 23, or drop off at your first event.
Please note that some events may require an RSVP. Select the events below to get more information, and to see if an RSVP is required.
The Take Your Child to Work Day event on April 23, 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Family Advocacy Committee hopes all families stay healthy and safe at home during this trying time. We look forward to planning a wonderful event for everyone to enjoy in 2021.
