Creating Safe Spaces for Peer Support Providers and Incorporating Anti-racist Practices in Peer Support Delivery
December 7, 2022: Kickoff Session
This learning series asks: How can we create spaces where all peer professionals feel safe? How do we support BIPOC peers and implement anti-racist practices within peer support?
In this kickoff session, join us in collaboration with peer support specialists who will speak to creating safe spaces for peer support providers within agencies. This series will open up opportunities to discuss ongoing support, career paths, antiracist practices, and how BIPOC peers can navigate the field. It will also offer a space to learn from other peer specialists.
- Create specific avenues for peers who identify as BIPOC
- Implement ant-racist strategies within peer support delivery
- Identify career paths for peer specialists
Peer support agencies and peer specialists who identify as Black, Indigenous and people of color. We also welcome allies and other roles to help support the BIPOC peer workforce.
