The National Take Our Children to Work Day program was founded by Gloria Steinem and the Ms. Foundation for Women in 1993. The Tuesday’s Children Take Our Children to Work Day is conducted annually in April for children ages 8-18, offering a close up look at organizations and careers of interest and helping them visualize their future. Participation in this program continues to increase each year. Since its inception, more than 1,000 children, approximately 100 corporate partners, and our entire staff have come together for a day of inspiration, creativity and opportunity.
Partners involved in our career programs include approximately 100 businesses and agencies in the following industries: construction, architecture, engineering, culinary arts, fashion, finance, investor relations, law, government, media, performing arts, philanthropy, public relations, advertising, public service, publishing, sports, strategic planning, and technology.
