The WNY Bring a Child to Work Day Registration is now open.

You must be an employee located on the Washington Navy Yard to participate.

You can find more information on registration and about the day here:

Women have made indispensable contributions to our national defense since the Revolutionary War, but it was in 1908 that women began to serve as official members in the U.S. Navy. Starting with the ‘Sacred Twenty’ and now today, women make up about 18 percent of the Navy and there are more than 68,000 women who are currently serving as active and reserve-force personnel. Women make numerous contributions to the Navy’s mission and Fleet operations; there are currently 40 active and Reserve flag officers, one Fleet Master Chief, one Force Master Chief, 48 Command Master Chiefs, and four Command Senior Chiefs leading from the front. Women have shown great courage, strength, and sacrifice over the years, and through service and leadership, they have been and continue to be an important part of the Navy’s history and its future. #WomensHistoryMonth

Wendy Lawrence followed her father's footsteps when she entered the U.S. Naval Academy in 1977. After distinguishing herself as a flight school graduate she was designated an Naval aviator in July 1982. After teaching physics for two years and serving as the novice women's crew coach at the Naval Academy, NASA selected Lawrence in August 1992. Of the 3,000 or so men and women applying every two years for the astronaut program, NASA chooses about 30. A year's training qualified Lawrence for flight assignment as a mission specialist. She logged more than 1200 hours in space when she completed four space flights: STS-67 Endeavor (March 2-18 1995), STS-86 Atlantis (September 25-October 6, 1997), STS-91 Discovery (June 2-12, 1998), and STS-114 Columbia (July 26-August 9, 2005). She recalled that the beautiful view of the planet on her first mission made it worth all that it took to get there. #WomensHistoryMonth

The first two African American women to answer the Navy’s call were Frances Eliza Wills, a social worker, and Harriet Ida Pickens, a public health administrator and the daughter of William Pickens, one of the founders of the NAACP. They entered the last class of WAVES officer candidates to be trained at Northampton Training Station at Smith College, New Hampshire. Upon graduation on 26 December 1944 they became the Navy’s first African American female officers. #WomensHistoryMonth
