EDI Discussion Series ~ LGBTQ2S+ Employees in the Public Sector

Video Conference

Creating a diverse, inclusive and equitable public sector—where all employees feel represented, respected, and supported—is necessary to support the needs of Canada’s changing demographics. This EDI Discussion Series explores how governments can actively work to support marginalized communities and break down system barriers.


Working in the public sector can provide many opportunities and advantages for employees—job security, career advancement, and the opportunity to serve the public and make change in your community. What strategies, policies, or leadership is needed to make the public service a good sector to work in for members of the LGBTQ2S+ community? 

Moderated by Dr. Cheryl Camillo (she/her), JSGS Assistant Professor and former Public Policy Advocate for the Human Rights Campaign, this panel will include: 

  • Krystal Nieckar (she/her), Executive Director with OUT Saskatoon, is a white queer woman born and raised in a rural Saskatchewan town on Treaty 4 Territory. She is passionate about advocacy, front-line support, and working with the community. 
  • Tyler Boyce (he/him) is the Executive Director with The Enchanté Network, a national network connecting, supporting, and advocating for nearly 200 2SLGBGTQI+ organizations, including pride centres and 2 Spirit societies. Tyler is a Kenyan and Somali Black queer public policy professional and community organizer with nine years of advocacy and leadership experience and a deep grounding in social justice, particularly as it is informed by Black queer feminist thought.
  • Malin Rozon (they/them), Education Chair with the Government of Saskatchewan Pride Alliance Network, is proudly nonbinary, trans and queer; they are engaged in gender affirming education, advocacy, and peer mentorship. Malin was a key contributor and editor for the Gender Transition Guidelines recently released by the Government of Saskatchewan for employees.
