Your step-by-step guide on how to connect to VPN: Although multi-factor authentication (MFA) allows employees to access Office 365 products such as Outlook and Teams from outside of the office — some applications, including shared drives and CDI, require employees to connect to our virtual private network (VPN). VPN and MFA work together to protect you against cyber threats and access our systems, even when you are away from the office. Whether you are new to the organization, or haven’t logged onto VPN in a while, it may be confusing to figure out at first. To help, check-out our step-by-step guide on accessing VPN from your device on Connect.
#NovaScotiaStrong, honouring Tom Bagley: Charlene Bagley’s father Tom Bagley was one of the victims of a mass shooting in Nova Scotia in April. He was killed by the gunman while rushing to his neighbour’s house, which was set on fire by the shooter. Charlene remembered Tom by supporting Canadian Blood Services’ #NovaScotiaStrong campaign. 180 people donated blood in Tom’s honour at events over two days in the small Nova Scotia community of Milford. After the events, Charlene told us more about her father, his dedication to helping others, and her own drive to continue that legacy. Read her story on blood.ca/stories.
Question of the day: Can I be assured that those of us who are Christian will not be treated unfairly as a result of the diversity, equity and inclusion initiative?
The purpose of our diversity, equity and inclusion work is to ensure that everyone is treated fairly. We want to create a more inclusive organization so that those who are impacted by different types of bias and discrimination can thrive.
We have a lot of work to do to achieve this and it is important to remember that our efforts are focused on identifying bias and breaking down barriers to inclusivity— not taking away opportunities from any specific group.
To learn more about our diversity, equity and inclusion journey and access resources to help you incorporate our values around this program into the work you do every day, visit our dedicated DEI page on Connect.
