Beyond Body Positivity:
Adding Fatness to Your
Intersectional Lens

Date: May 26, 2021
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time

It’s time to collectively strengthen our analysis around anti-fat bias.

Your organization has been working hard to create an equity culture. You’re proactively addressing systemic race, class, gender and ability issues. You’re taking the classes, having the conversations with your team, and putting those ideas into practice.

But is size discrimination on your radar?

We’ve got to talk about the harm of fat phobia

As discussion of inclusion and intersectionality abound, fat folks are still some of the most stigmatized people in America. This stigmatization is often legitimized by a wider culture that sees fatness as a moral failing or health issue.

This is true everywhere, but particularly in the workplace where fat folks earn less and advance more slowly and with greater scrutiny. These actions are rationalized by leadership who say they are “managing corporate healthcare costs.”  

Beyond Body Positivity: Adding Fatness to Your Intersectional Lens

The Adaway Group, along with Every Level Leadership, is co-sponsoring this Be Nourished webinar to unpack biases around fatness and provide tools to create more welcoming spaces for all bodies. 

This is a space for critical healing and validation for fat folks, and a learning space for folks who strive to be on the vanguard around social justice issues.

Participants will:

  • Examine biases around fatness and size discrimination.
  • Explore diet culture through Bobbie Harro’s cycle of socialization.
  • Decouple healthism and fat bias.

Join us for the discussion, and leave with tools to:

  • Examine and remove fat bias in their communities.
  • Begin having conversations about fatness as it relates to community care.
