About the Foundation

Take Our Daughters to Work started in 1993 in response to disturbing research on adolescent girls' loss of self confidence. In the ten years following, technology and workplace productivity demands have changed the work life for men and women. After 10 successful years of a Take Our Daughters to Work program, Ms Foundation expanded it to include boys in 2003. It became Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work®. The program evolved in 2003 to focus on equitably integrating work with family responsibilities and personal goals.
