@DigiEnablement – #OneGC
More preparations for our upcoming #OneGC meeting next week. I have been working to support Jason Blackwell and Derek Alton with this task. Hopefully will have something to share next week as we look to finalize our vision.
@DigiEnablement – O365 / Teams POC’s
I’m continuing to work on connecting with people working with O365. I am searching the Public Service to find people who are using O365 to collaborate and work within their organizations. To those who have reached out, I will be in touch this week!
#WomenInSTEM Monthly (this month held at Canadian Digital Services)
Last month Shared Services Canada’s (SSC) Claire N., and Christine C. launched a #GC wide #WomenInSTEM network. The network will be hosting a monthly meeting at the end of the month. The purpose is to discuss issues WomenInSTEM are encountering in the workforce. This past week I introduced Kinga Petrovai and Lydia Jeong to the network where they joined the conversation about Imposter Syndrome. Like the previous meeting, this is the first time I have ever discussed this, and it was an amazing opportunity to learn about it. I’m very thankful for being able to attend along with two colleagues in the #GC from two different departments. If you want more information on the network, please connect with Claire N and Christine Cyr. Happy to connect you to them.
