CLDP, in cooperation with the Department of Commerce Research Library, organized the second annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Over 20 children attended the event, which took place on Thursday, April 28, 2016.  The young and enthusiastic “employees” started their day with a welcome and swearing-in ceremony led by OGC General Counsel Kelly Welsh.
