DFS RECOGNIZES ‘TAKE OUR DAUGHTERS & SONS TO WORK DAY’
The Department of Financial Services hosted more than 150 children for a full day of activities on April 22nd, 2004.
Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher, who oversees the Department of Financial Services, today joined more than 150 children of employees in the department’s annual recognition of “Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.”
“This is a valuable opportunity for children to experience the workplace firsthand,” Gallagher said. “There is a practical connection between the classroom and the office, and I commend the parents and other employees for taking time with these kids to offer some important real-world lessons.”
Those attending the event
participated in a tour of the Capitol, a demonstration of the department’s Arson
K-9 Investigative Team and a special storybook time, with the selection, “Three
Little Pigs: A Financial Fairy Tale,” aimed at teaching money management skills.
“Take Our Daughters and Sons
to Work Day” is a national program designed for both girls and boys which
focuses on expanding future opportunities for all children, in both their work
and family lives. More information on the program is available at
