Program Manager, Washington Initiative for Supported Employment (WISE)
Charly Walters developed a passion for social equality from over a decade of experience in job coaching, job development, residential care, and volunteering with individuals with disabilities. Having grown up in a rural environment, Charly was immersed in an inclusive community where labels such as disability were not something that separated or divided people from one another, an experience which has led to her lifelong career. She has provided embedded employment training and consulting to high school students learning to manage dual diagnoses. Currently, Charly works with businesses and the county on the HireAbility Spokane initiative in Washington state, which focuses on business to business events and marketing.
