All public servants at all levels



Building a strong and diverse public service requires confident and compassionate leaders willing to advocate for the needs of everyone and support the creation of spaces where members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ communities can thrive. Understanding how to do this through the lens of intersectionality is of critical importance. In addition, encouraging the inclusion of allies brings together our communities.

This impactful event features public service leaders sharing their stories and discussing ways in which the federal government is increasing intersectional cultural capacity. Participants will learn about intersectionality and allyship, as well as concrete actions that leaders can take to be more vulnerable and empathetic—thereby transforming our workplace into places of safety and growth to better support its diverse communities.

This event is presented in collaboration with the Public Service Pride Network, the Black Executives Network and the National Managers Community.
