January 15: Twitter Update from the Deputy Minister Jody Thomas

January 19, 2021 – Defence Stories

Friday Update: A busy week full of change and new possibilities. We welcomed our new @CDS_Canada_CEMD and it’s so evident that the CAF is in steady hands with Admiral McDonald. It’s also clear we’ll be hearing a lot more Navy metaphors.

We launched our new virtual Executive Development Program this week for DND employees in a group/level equivalent to EX, EX minus 1 or EX minus 2. I’ve asked L1s for nominations by 21 January. Can’t wait to see who’s in the first cohort.

DND civilians: Have your say through the Public Service Employment Survey before 22 January. It includes COVID-specific questions to help us understand where we can support you better. If you need a new link, request one here: https://pses-saff.advanis.ca/

Have you noticed that @School_GC is offering plenty of #GCLearning opportunities in the coming weeks? Have a look: https://www.csps-efpc.gc.ca/events/index-eng.aspx

#BellLetsTalk Day is coming up 28 January. VCDS Rouleau and I are hosting a virtual coffee talk to have a chat with 8-10 Defence Team members. Interested? Watch for details in next Tuesday’s Defence Team News email.

In the meantime, take care of yourselves by gripping the basics: the food and drink you consume, your self-talk, and the way you follow important public health advice. You’re not alone. And we’ll get through this. #keepyourdistance #WashYourHands #WearAMask
