Thursday 26th April 2012 – a special day

If you live in the US, today is a special day for sons and daughters…

What a brilliant initiative!  Check the link: www.daughtersandsonstowork.org/

Of course, it’s only one day so all those lucky sons and daughters won’t get the widest of experiences but it’s a brilliant idea nevertheless.

There will doubtless be plenty of people who will resent the idea of “kids” coming into their workplace and distracting them.  But there will also be plenty of people who find themselves to be naturally inspiring and who will encourage young talent.  Even if that sometimes results in the sons and daughters changing their understanding of what work is all about, then that’s a good thing.  We all like to make informed choices and we want our children to have that opportunity too.  This looks like a great initiative!
