ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Medical Center)
All STUDENTS AT UCSD
Each year on the fourth Thursday of April, employers across the country participate in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Programs and activities planned at UCSD are intended to expand future opportunities for our nation's daughters and sons, ages 8-12, promote gender equity, and encourage parents and their children to think about how the work they choose fits into their overall future. Girls and boys of our faculty, staff and students will be exposed to a variety of careers and are welcomed and encouraged to attend. Participating children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
This year's event will take place on Thursday, April 27, 2006.
Registration and breakfast will be from 8:30 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. at "The Hump", next to the new Women's Center - Student Center West Building 290, directly in front of the Main Gym steps. Programs and activities will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at various campus locations. A schedule of events and registration information will be available on April 7, 2006 at http://women.ucsd.edu. For more information, please contact the Women's Center at (858) 822-0074.
In recognition of this event, I am approving 2 hours of administrative leave with pay on Thursday, April 27, so that employees may participate in this annual event with their children. Therefore, supervisors are encouraged to grant employees 2 hours of administrative leave with pay when the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required job duties.
