Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

The annual “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day” is on Thursday, April 21, 2016 and UC Davis Health has a schedule of presentations and activities planned to observe the occasion.

“Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day’ is the day on which employers nationwide host children at their workplaces.  It is intended for girls and boys ages 8 to 15. This year’s theme is “Sparking AHA Moments” and the goal is to provide enriching educational experiences with hands-on and interactive activities for the children.   Employees are encouraged to participate provided their work schedules allow and they have supervisory approval.

Parents must supervise their children at all times and bring them to work only if approved by the employee’s supervisor.  Employees who bring their children to their workplaces should ensure that they do not allow access or exposure to protected health information.

Children should not be allowed in patient-care areas and other locations where they may view diagnostic images such as X-rays and pathology slides, unless all identifying information is removed.  Parents also should keep their children away from areas where computers are logged into systems containing patient information, or where they may view patients in non-public areas.

Incidents associated with unauthorized access, use or disclosure of patient information may subject UC Davis Health to mandatory reporting requirements to the California Department of Public Health that could impose fines on the UC Davis Health and to employees who are responsible for any unauthorized access, use or disclosure of patient information.

Online Registration will be posted on the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion/Employee Resource Group website starting March 11, 2016https://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/diversity-inclusion/employee_resource_groups

The event is co-sponsored by UC Davis Health’s Status of Women at Davis Administrative Advisory Committee, Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and HR/Work life and Wellness
