In the US there is a practice originally called "Take your Daughter to work day". It has recently been renamed "Take your child to work day".
The original idea was to show daughters that there was a world of work beyond secretaries, nurses, and teachers. By inviting sons to work it has changed the dynamic.
Is there still a benefit for any of the parties concerned -- that is employers, employees, and especially kids -- in doing this?
Could anyone enlighten me as to the benefits of doing this to all the parties concerned?
This is not related to the general question: What benefits are there of being allowed to take your kids to work?.
