Meet the Speakers:


Nicole White is the Project Lead for Enough Already, a multi-stakeholder coalition determined to address and prevent workplace sexual harassment in Saskatchewan.

Before joining Enough Already, Nicole worked in community for two decades and focused her professional work on gender-based issues and engaging marginalized populations. 

She’s a registered social worker and in her spare time, spearheaded the non-profit, Moon Time Sisters, getting free menstrual products to northern Saskatchewan to improve access to education.

Canadian Journalist, Anna Maria Tremonti will discuss her recent book about intimate partner violence and pushing through the glass ceiling in Canadian Broadcasting.
For 17 years, Anna Maria Tremonti hosted CBC Radio One’s The Current, where her mix of hard-edged journalism and hard-won empathy helped build the show into Canada’s most listened-to radio program. She is currently the host of Welcome to Paradise on CBC Podcasts. Her recognizable voice, thoughtful questions, and her approach to finding the humanity in the people you meet, draws listeners in.

Mia Kirshner is best known for her pivotal series regular role as ‘Jenny Schecter’ in Showtime’s “The L-Word,” for which the show creator, Chaiken, is quoted by the New York Times as having said, “There are no boundaries to what Ms. Kirshner can do as an actor.. I see her having such a great range. I do see her as a leading lady”.

She can next be seen with the creators/co-author of I Live here published by Pantheon. Mia headlined for the Lifetime movie The College Admissions Scandal and has received critical acclaim for her portrayal of Elizabeth Short, alongside Scarlett Johansson and Hilary Swank, in the Brian De Palma Feature, The Black Dahlia. Her other credits include significant roles in “24,” “Defiance,” Atom Egoyan’s Exotica, and more recently, Milton’s Secret, alongside Donald Sutherland.

Most recently, Mia can be seen portraying the heavily recurring ‘Amanda Grayson’ in CBS’s “Star Trek: Discovery.” 

In 1977, Bonnie Robichaud accepted a job at the Department of Defence military base in North Bay, Ontario. After a string of dead-end jobs, with five young children at home, Robichaud was ecstatic to have found a unionized job with steady pay, benefits, and vacation time.

After her supervisor began to sexually harass and intimidate her, her story could have followed the same course as countless women before her: endure, stay silent, and eventually quit. Instead, Robichaud filed a complaint after her probation period was up. When a high-ranking officer said she was the only one who had ever complained, Robichaud said, “Good. Then it should be easy to fix.”

This timely and revelatory memoir follows her gruelling eleven-year fight for justice, which was won in the Supreme Court of Canada. The unanimous decision set a historic legal precedent that employers are responsible for maintaining a respectful and harassment-free workplace. Robichaud’s story is a landmark piece of Canadian labour history—one that is more relevant today than ever.

Lindsey Dahl is CPHR with over 14 years of professional HR experience. Her current role is a HR Business Partner with the Public Service Commission in Saskatoon.

On the side of her role, she is contracted part time with the Enough Already project which aims to provide education and support to end workplace sexual harassment. In 2014, Lindsey completed a Master of Arts degree in Conflict Analysis and Management through Royal Roads University.

She has a strong interest in dispute resolution and empowering workplaces to embrace and manage conflict as it arises in order to create a healthy workplace culture.

Lorie Johb

Johb became a vice-president of the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour in 2005, representing her union – SEIU-West. In 2010, Johb was elected Secretary-Treasurer of the SFL, a position she has held until she was first elected SFL president in 2018. She lives in Leroy, and is a proud healthcare worker.

Bob Stenhouse, founder of Veritas Solutions, first made his mark as a highly decorated and nationally recognized serious and organized crime investigator with the RCMP. A pioneer and innovator, Bob was a leader on an elite team of undercover investigators who changed the way cold case homicide investigations were conducted. The techniques developed in the early 1990’s were internationally groundbreaking and have come to be known as “Mr. Big” investigations.  Bob’s got some stories! 

On his retirement from the RCMP, Bob brought the same level of determination, innovation, keen insight, and emotional intelligence to his role conducting workplace investigations and corporate training as a consultant.

As a corporate investigations consultant and Alberta Human Rights investigator in the early 2000’s, Bob provided service excellence to many government agencies, First Nations, and corporations in the resolution and mitigation of complex human resource risks. 

Bob is passionate and highly informed in his areas of expertise. He is considered by adjudicators, lawyers, peers and clients as a subject matter expert in harassment, bullying, sexual harassment, human rights, and violence investigations. Investigations, under Bob’s oversight and quality assurance, have withstood the legal scrutiny of arbitrators, the courts, ombudsman and regulatory bodies.

Mark Heise, Founder Rebellion Brewery
He studied business and economics but dropped out of university as soon as he got a full-time job in accounting. After a few years, he switched to IT, doing all sorts of high-level technical IT work, eventually moving into project management, technical architecture, and finally as an account executive managing tens of millions of annual IT spending, and advising CEOs and government officials on strategic IT investment in alignment with high level business needs. Mark may have worn a suit and had his own office, but he was still a punk rocker underneath, and most of the time he was daydreaming about beer and opening his own brewery.

This dream became a reality in 2014 when Rebellion Brewing opened. Rebellion quickly became the biggest craft brewery in Saskatchewan, and built a reputation for being honest, passionate, and outspoken about making really good beer, while promoting everything great about Regina and Saskatchewan, and being a huge community supporter, engager and collaborator.

Mark Heise was “born a rebel,” always marching to the beat of his own drum and always looking for something new, interesting, or different. This eventually led him down a rabbit hole of punk rock and homebrewing, where he further explored his DIY hard working ethos and pursuit of excellence to become one of the best homebrewers in the world.

Michelle King, Enough Already
Michelle is the Outreach and Education Consultant for Enough Already. She also works part-time as the Program Director for Leadership Saskatoon. Michelle has twelve years of program management experience across a variety of sectors and institutions including S.I.I.T, Dumont Technical Institute and the University of Saskatchewan.
