EAU CLAIRE - Area girls are invited to learn more about jobs that might interest them at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire during the annual Take Our Daughters to Work Day Thursday, April 24.

UW-Eau Claire's chapter of Women in Higher Education will sponsor activities and help girls connect with university employees who have jobs of interest to the girls.

Last year, 82 girls between the ages of 8 and 15 participated in structured morning activities. WHE members this year would like to focus on individual girls. The girls will be invited to ask questions about careers and take part in work in which they have an interest.

The day will begin with a 8-9 a.m. reception and refreshments in the Badger Room of Davies Center. At 8:45 a.m., Provost/Vice Chancellor Marjorie Smelstor will welcome participants in Davies Theatre. From 9-10 a.m., campus ambassadors will give the girls tours of UW-Eau Claire. The girls will meet with role models and participate in work activities from 10 a.m. to noon. From noon to 1 p.m., a brown bag discussion is planned in the Badger Room of Davies Center. All girls, parents and interested people are invited to attend the brown bag.

The third Thursday of April is a national day set aside to focus on girls' hopes and dreams. Today's girls will spend more than 30 years in the workforce and will comprise a majority of the nation's workers.
