UO employees are invited to bring their children to campus April 25 for “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” a national program to inspire girls and boys to begin thinking about their futures and introduce them to career opportunities.

Children ages 9 to 13 may come to the UO to observe a parent's work, whether in a classroom, laboratory, studio or office.

“It’s never too early to start encouraging youth to have an active imagination, to set goals and to take more control of their future,” says Work-Life Resources Director Karen Logvin.

This year's theme is "Work in Progress.” Theme-related activities will occur on campus throughout the day. Those wishing to volunteer with activities can sign up to participate by March 21. The online form may also be sent via campus mail to Kathy Cooks, Human Resources, Special Programs Coordinator; faxed to 541-346-2548; or emailed as an attachment to Kathy Cooks.

Questions may be directed by e-mail to Karen Logvin, director of work-life resources, or by phone at 346-2962.
