Take our Daughters (Children) to Work
Women's Interchange at SLAC (WIS) was instrumental in bringing Take our Daughters to Work day to SLAC, with the first event held in 1994. Following the 1995 event, it was scheduled to be observed at SLAC every other year. The 1997 event was changed, as an experiment, to include boys and girls in "Take our Children to Work" day. The consensus being that having both girls and boys did not work well, we reverted to Take Our Daughters in 1999. In 2000 SLAC's Human Resources Department kindly agreed to take the lead in organizing this very popular event because it really benefits the whole of SLAC and to return to an annual event. WIS planning group members continue to work on the TODTWD organizing committee. In 2001 enough volunteers stepped forward to organize a very similar event for boys called Bring Our Boys to SLAC, which was also very well-received.
