Listaproperty.com, a signatory company of the Women’s Empowerment Principles (#WEPs), has launched the first edition of “Take your Daughter to Work Day” an initiative that invites working mothers to bring their daughters to work for half a day. This event matches the recent commitment made by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, toward empowering future generations through education and tolerance.
The concept of “Take your Daughter to Work Day” began in the United States in 1992 as part of the “Year of the Woman”, when professional women realized the importance of inspiring young girls with the “working woman” figure. The programme is still celebrated in the United States and the UAE will soon follow the lead.
The #ListapropertyxTYKTWD event, responds to the company’s mission of empowering youth in the region by “giving our daughters a first-hand look at what we “moms” do all day.” Those were the words of Kim Kelaita, Listaproperty.com’s co-founder and UNGC-UAE Local Network and #WEPs committee member.
Following this activity, mums and daughters will enjoy an afternoon tea at the luxury 118, owned by Signature Developers, while they listen to Suzanne al-Houby the first Arab woman to climb Mount Everest and its seven summits.
