About the Action Committees
The Public Service Pride Action Committees (ACs) form an important part of the broader Public Service Pride Network, which exists to support the advancement of diversity and inclusion related to 2SLGBTQIA+ persons across the federal public service, year round.
Through standing and ad hoc committees, the ACs are intended to enrich ongoing efforts and discussions by bringing the lived experiences of 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals into the discussion in a structured manner.
