Working from home. Schooling from home. Everything has gone home. So how exactly do you celebrate Take Your Daughter to Work Day on April 23? Most of us have seen the hilarious videos of the important business meetings with the kids running around in the background. That is not exactly taking your daughter to work. While these videos are humorous to most of us, Take Your Daughter to Work Day is about showing your daughter that she can do anything! No matter what your job, this special day each year gives parents (moms and dads) a chance to bond with their daughter(s) with career choices.

San Francisco, CA –This year’s April 23rd Take Your Daughter to Work Day is going virtual. Prominent CEOs including Sallie Krawchek of Ellevest, Mariam Naficy of Minted, Nancy Lublin of Crisis Text Line and Gregg Renfrew of Beauty Counter will bring their wisdom and advice to kids nationwide on Instagram Live.

The segments will be 20 minutes each. There will also be giveaways including Birchbox subscriptions, cases of HINT water, Girl Scout cookies, make-up, and copies of Girls Who Run the World.
“The mission of this event and my book is to raise the visibility of female CEOs and founders. I strongly believe you can’t be what you can’t see. To raise a generation of girls who expect to be CEOs, they need to see what this looks like in action. Far too many girls do not see themselves in these roles. Let’s change that. Boys, too, need to see badass women doing what they do, to change mindsets about who does what in this world,” says Kapp.
