Saska has worked with various NGOs, non-profits, and women’s funds, and has extensive experience with LGBTQ+ communities, women’s rights, and gender equality, and on a leading research trial dedicated to ending sexual violence, engaging bystanders, and building communities of support across Canadian universities.

Saska has twice been named amongst the Women’s Executive Network’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada and on Culture Amp’s list of “21 Diversity and Inclusion Leaders You Should Know.” She speaks internationally and is a TEDx speaker, and she has been featured on CBC’s "The National," as well as in Fast Company and The New York Times.
