A Little Inspiration
The big honchos in the upstairs offices are being forced to be nice for one more day this week. First there is Administrative Assistant Day (keep dropping those hints) and then tomorrow is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.
Founded by the Ms. Foundation for Women for daughters, the program has expanded to include those pesky sons too, no doubt at the bequest of teachers around the country who are hoping for a easy-breezy day. A recent episode of The Office highlighted some workplace fun that kids of all ages could enjoy. How to use a shredder, make copies – but that is of course in Scranton, Pennsylvania and this being Los Angeles, who has regular jobs anyway?
Another option for general do-goodery tomorrow is Step Up Women’s Network Annual Inspiration Awards. They are a nonprofit, membership organization that strives to strengthen community resources for women and girls through community service, mentoring, and fundraising for women’s health issues. Their annual event is a luncheon tomorrow at the Beverly Hilton Hotel which will surely be a star-studded affair with some of the most powerful and successful women in Los Angeles attending and honoring Geena Davis, Jamie McCourt, Nina Tassler and Adriana Alberghetti.
