Public Service Pride Week 2022: Being Your Authentic Self at Work


Pride Season includes a wide range of events and activities that take place over the summer months to spotlight the resilience, celebrate the talent, and recognize the contributions of LGBTQ2+ communities and their allies.

To help promote a welcoming and inclusive workplace for all, this interactive event features a panel of guest speakers who will share their stories about what it means to be your authentic self in the workplace. Participants will learn about the experiences of others and what actions they can take to create a positive, safe and inclusive environment for LGBTQ2+ employees and allies within their own organization. A live Q&A will follow the panel discussion.

This event is presented in partnership with the Public Service Pride network as part of Public Service Pride Week 2022.
