Access to Independence staff working on the Wisconsin Peer Specialist Employment Initiative and EOTO, CPS have begun working together to implement supports within the Initiative that serve to advance equity and justice.
The Wisconsin Peer Specialist Employment Initiative places a great deal of importance on addressing historic disparities related to this Initiative. We seek to support greater access to training, employment, and educational opportunities for current and aspiring Certified Peer Specialists and Certified Parent Peer Specialists belonging to marginalized and oppressed identities.
The Wisconsin Peer Specialist Employment Initiative strives to center the principles of equity and justice in all areas of our work. To read more about this, click here.
