Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day (Journée oser tous les métiers - JOM)

JOM 2019

This year's event took place on Thursday, November 14, 2019. Children in 7th, 8th or 9th year (HarmoS) came to UNIL with one of their parents or another person working or studying at the university and participated in various workshops.

To host breakfast and start the day with enthusiasm, we invited Prof. Silke Grabherr, Director of the Centre universitaire romand de médecine légale, who was able to develop post-mortem angiography. The winner of the 2019 Academic Outreach Award told of her atypical and inspiring path for children accompanied by their parents.

What is Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day?

Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day (Journée Oser tous les métiers - JOM) has been running since 2003 throughout Vaud canton and elsewhere in Switzerland (Futur en tous genres is the name of the current national project).

It offers girls and boys in years 7 to 9 (HarmoS) the opportunity to accompany their parent or someone else in their circle (of the opposite sex) to work and take part in a range of workshops.

It aims to help children broaden their professional horizons beyond traditional stereotypes and discuss questions around their choice of career and other life decisions freely with their parents.
