October 30: Twitter Update from the Deputy Minister Jody Thomas

November 3, 2020 - Defence Stories

Friday Update: Lots going on. And while the day-to-day can be challenging, it’s wonderful to see so much positive work happening right now across the Defence Team. I’d like to recognize some of that work now.  

Big shoutout to all those instrumental in launching on the Path to Dignity and Respect, a holistic, long-term approach to stamping out sexual misconduct. Special thanks to the work of VCDS Group guided by LGen Rouleau: https://www.canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/corporate/reports-publications/the-path-to-dignity-and-respect.html

Another shoutout this week to ADM (@DRDC_RDDC) Isabelle Desmartis and all those involved in releasing the 4th IDEaS call for proposals. Never doubt that your innovative solutions to defence and security challenges can make a difference: https://www.canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/programs/defence-ideas.html

Each year, Canadian kids hear from CAF members about the importance of service and sacrifice through the National Veterans Week Speakers Program. A small but mighty team within ADM (PA) organize everything. Another big job that deserves a shoutout.

Several #DefenceTeam leaders sent in their thoughts for #CHWM2020. Recognize anyone?

Our Corporate Secretary, Isabelle Daoust is moving on to an exciting new opportunity. The governance and leadership Isabelle helped foster within Corporate Secretariat will be with us for years to come. Thank you, Isabelle and good luck! 

It’s motivating for me to see so many Defence Team members supporting each other and focusing on finding solutions during these challenging COVID times. Thank you all. P.S. #washyourhands & #wearmask
