On Wednesday, @NancyChahwan and I recognized this quarter’s DM Commendation recipients. Congratulations to the awesome: Denise Moore; CWO Suzanne McAdam; ADM (MAT)’s WG4 Employment Equity Team; and the Visible Minorities Staffing Pilot Team.

Deep appreciation to all Defence Team Minds Matter teammates out walking or running this week in support of Women’s Mental Health. Everyone has their own reason for participating, and you’re all amazing and should be proud.  

As folks take their summer leave, be aware that some teams may need a bit longer to respond to non-urgent requests. Please be kind, prioritize requests, and let’s keep supporting each other as we do our important work for Canadians.
