Julie Slater, Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory
Julie took over leadership of the Dstl EnableD Mental Health employee support network in October 2019, and during her time at the helm, the community has flourished. Prior to lockdown, Julie's enthusiasm and approachability saw attendance at group meetings increase from single digits to over 30. During lockdown, she has instigated methods allowing this support mechanism to more than double again. For many, this has been a true lifeline in these extremely challenging times. Julie's contribution to providing mental health and wellbeing support to everyone at Dstl cannot be overstated. It continues to grow, alongside their community, on a daily basis.
