On Take Our Daughters to Work Day, Thursday, April 26, girls 9 to 15 can learn about the world of work, careers, and other matters, including health, nutrition and fitness.
Young girls and their sponsors can meet prominent Penn women at work, sit in on the Penn Relays, tour the David Rittenhouse Laboratory observatory and more. The event is sponsored by Penn’s Quality of Work Life Program. For information or to register for activities, visit on the Web.

Don’t have a daughter? You can “adopt” one for the day. Contact Penn VIPS Coordinator Isabel Sampson-Mapp (; 215-898-2020) for details.
