BIPOC Peer Support Series, Session 2: Setting the Stage for Creating Safe Spaces
(Wednesday, Feb. 22) 10:00-11:15 a.m. PT (view your time zone)
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 Session 2 of this series, join facilitator Evelyn Clark and peer support specialists Shaun Worthy, Alex Ferguson, and Danny Leonard to explore how we can create safe spaces for peer support providers within agencies.
This affinity group opens opportunities to discuss ongoing support, career paths, and antiracist practices in peer services, and how BIPOC peers can navigate the field. It will also offer a space to learn from other peer specialists.
Peer support agencies and peer specialists who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color who work in mental health and cross-systems. We also welcome allies and other roles to help support the BIPOC peer workforce.
- Create specific avenues for peers who identify as BIPOC
- Implement ant-racist strategies within peer support delivery
- Identify career paths for peer specialists
