Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day (TODASTW), a national initiative, took place on April 28, 2016. We were excited to participate this year and join forces with our largest recruitment partner, Eli Lilly & Company! 3 Lilly employees who serve as Bigs, Mark Short, Xiao Zhang, and Jennifer Wiseman, participated in interactive, educational opportunities with their Littles on the day. These Littles got a glimpse of career opportunities at Lilly, and a first-hand look at their Bigs day-to-day lives.
Big Brother Mark Short who brought his Little Brother, Dainondre, to work with him, said of his experience, “I think the best part was giving my little the tour and having him ooh and awe about our workplace. This prompted a lot of questions and opportunities for me to discuss careers and the various aspects of Life at Lilly.”
