February is Black History Month. It’s a time for us to celebrate and honour the many contributions that Black Canadians have made throughout our history to help make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate, and prosperous nation that it is today. For the Defence Team, it’s an opportunity to learn more about the important achievements that Black Defence Team members have made, both within our armed forces and throughout the public service.
By bringing forward their own unique perspectives, Black Defence Team members are strengthening our operations, both at home and abroad, and enhancing the work our public service does on behalf of Canadians every day.
We encourage Black Defence Team members to tell their stories and share their voices. We can all do our part to make our organization truly inclusive by embracing culture change and learning how to reinforce positive work environments that respect our diversity.
Save the date:
