Following up on two previous special editions, Esprit de Corps magazine continues to help break down the barricades by introducing readers to the high calibre of talent women bring to the defence community. Over the past years, forty women have been recognized, not only for what they’ve done professionally, but for who they are personally. Nominations for 2017 are now open. If you know someone who deserves to be profiled, whether they are serving soldiers, politicians, journalists, advocates, academics or industry executives, send a note to: email@example.com
Heads Up! WiDS will be holding a special professional development - speed mentoring event in conjunction with the Esprit de Corps Breaking Down the Barricades award reception in April 2017.
