SOUTHERN MISS GULF COAST TO HOST EMPLOYEES' CHILDREN
FOR TAKE OUR DAUGHTERS AND SONS TO WORK DAY APRIL 22

LONG BEACH -- The children of employees at The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast campus will have an opportunity Thursday to see what their parents do each working day as they participate in national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Day.

Beginning at 9:30 a.m., the children, mostly ages 8-16, will be greeted by Southern Miss Gulf Coast Provost Dr. Jay Grimes before setting out to sample many of the careers for which the university prepares its students. These will include culinary arts, nursing, and marine science. The children will wrap up their day with a tennis lesson before rejoining their parents in their work environments.

From 1993 until 2002, 71 million American adults participated in the Ms. Foundation for Women's Take Our Daughters To Work® Day. Last year, the Ms. Foundation expanded the program to include boys in the new Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work® Day. This new program aims to broaden the conversation about work-family issues and encourage "family friendly" workplaces for working mothers and fathers.
