PACFLT Senior Enlisted Discuss Mission Readiness

Senior enlisted leaders met at U.S. Pacific Fleet (PACFLT) headquarters for the annual Senior Enlisted Leadership Training Symposium (SELTS) March 23-25.

The symposium allows senior enlisted leaders from around the Pacific Fleet to gather and review the effectiveness of current policies and ways to improve mission readiness in open-forum discussions. It also provides an opportunity for the participants to interact with U.S. Pacific Fleet Master Chief Marco Ramirez and various flag officers.

Rear Adm. Robert Girrier, PACFLT deputy commander, spoke with SELTS participants about the importance of synchronization between commands and understanding the hierarchy of guidance as well as the important roles that each of these leaders play at their commands.

A main focus of the discussions was Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) and the importance of Sailors being the first line of defense.

The symposium provides the leaders the opportunity to assemble and exchange ideas, knowledge and personal insights to ensure they have a common objective to strengthen Sailor and mission readiness.

Over a span of three days, the symposium included team building exercises, discussions about updating instructions, and CPO 365 training.
