T for Take your daughter to work #AtoZChallenge
Last week I was in an offsite with my US partners and we were talking about one personal story or learning that we would like to share with the team. We spoke of festivals, apps, food and fun facts among many other things. One thing that JJ shared stayed with me.
In the 90s, her father’s workplace had a ‘Take your daughter to work’ day. JJ’s father was a pilot and that meant getting to visit an airbase and sit in a cockpit. While she shared the picture with all of us, my mind when to the thought behind this. The thought is relevant today too.
If every child gets to visit the workplace of her parents, imagine the impact it creates. She gets to know the physical space, she understands where her parents spend their time and what it means to work. I thought it was a great idea to pursue in the 90s and nothing stops companies to once in a while let employees bring their children to work. In today’s times too.
“Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.”
I am participating in the A To Z Challenge for the third time this year and I am penning Stories from everyday life.
