    Change starts with conversations.

    Each month, Deputy Minister (DM) Jody Thomas hosts an informal coffee talk with a different small group of Defence Team (DT) members. The hour-long sessions offer a relaxed atmosphere to discuss what’s on DT members’ minds. Recent discussions have covered everything from women in leadership to childcare on the west coast to parking at Carling. You bring the topics. We’ll bring the coffee.

    The next Coffee Talk hosted by Deputy Minister Jody Thomas will be Monday, November 25 at 101 Colonel By.

    Email +Internal Communications internes@ADM(PA)@Ottawa-Hull no later than November 18 and provide your name, your L1 organisation, and topic you’d most like to discuss with DM Thomas. Space is limited each month so we’ll get back to you to confirm attendance.
