Deputy Minister of the Department of National Defence (DND), Jody Thomas, hosted a 2021 Virtual Student event on June 16. The event provided an opportunity to welcome and engage Defence students across the country, to create a sense of community, and to talk about all of the great things DND has to offer now and into the future.

The theme of the event was “Be Yourself and See Yourself in a future at DND!”. The event featured interactive breakout rooms where new students had the opportunity to ask current and former students and young professionals about emerging trends in the workplace.

Many inspiring remarks were given from senior leadership and past DND students:
