On April 28, CIG & Merage Foundations had their first take your daughter and son to work day invitation. The half day was filled with 16 young leaders, who enjoyed food, laughter, games, and learning about their parents work responsibilities. The children were able to explore the work environment, learn about professional conduct, and invited to taste test a pasta product that was under evaluation by the company.
In addition to learning about their parents work and daily structure, the children were able to complete a craft that provided each child the opportunity to support Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each child took home their individually made pinwheel in honor of children who may be in less than desirable situations. The day continued with conversations about what they would like to do when they are of working age. Some shared that they want to do what their parents are doing and help other people because it feels good, and others shared that they want to be doctors, lawyers, and web designers. When the children were asked if they would like to visit again, without hesitation they all agreed both verbally and with a show of hands, they certainly want to return to their parent’s work place and learn more about what they do daily and eat pizza!
