DOD Senior Executive Pays Tribute to Women in National Service

Friday, March 17, 2006
Patricia Bradshaw, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Civilian Personnel Policy (CPP), addressed more than 150 employees at the Naval Sea Systems Command’s celebration of Women’s History Month Wednesday. “Today we celebrate and give thanks for the community of Department of Defense women who have and are forging paths and accomplished firsts for us and for our daughters to come,” said Bradshaw. “We must be mindful that, as a community of DoD women, we are but one part of a greater whole necessary to accomplish the DoD mission.” Bradshaw has served 27 years with the Department of Defense and Department of Navy in a variety of senior level positions, including serving as the Senior executive director of human resources for NAVSEA. In this position, she played a significant role in the design and implementation of personnel demonstration programs within DoD laboratories. “The hopes and dreams of women in the Department of Defense continue to be realized everyday by the contributions of over 220,000 women serving in civilian positions - over 1/3 of the total DoD workforce - and over 200,000 serving in the active duty force. These numbers continue to make the DoD the nation’s largest employer of women,” said Bradshaw. After her speech, Bradshaw answered several questions from NAVSEA employees. When asked about the National Security Personnel System (NSPS), which is slated for implementation at NAVSEA in May, she said that she was celebrating NSPS. Bradshaw asserted that she was a long-time advocate of an alternative to the general schedule system. Bradshaw has served as the director of classification for the Navy and the director of staffing, career development and executive resources for the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Civilian Personnel Policy. In the private sector, she has served as Deputy Chief of Human Resources for a large IT consulting firm in Fairfax, Va., and the president of a small consulting firm. She has earned two Navy Superior Civilian Service Awards, the Classification and Compensation Society President's Award and the Defense Civilian Service Award and holds a master’s degree in international management and a bachelor’s degree in secondary education-German, both from the University of Maryland.
