What you'll do

This workshop provides a foundational understanding of the ways size-based discrimination, or Fatphobia, is reflected in our systems, in our media, and in our lives. People in larger bodies are disproportionately harmed by violence, bullying, and abuse, but are also systemically discriminated against in healthcare, justice, and the workplace. Less overtly, fatphobia shows up in more subtle, implicit ways in our attitudes, beliefs, and biases against people in larger bodies. 

Through a combination of education, personal reflection, and sharing, this workshop will help participants better understand Fatphobia, examine their own relationship to it,  and learn how to become better allies and stewards at work and in their communities. Whatever your body size, shape, or weight - we all benefit from this work.

This workshop includes: 
  • Review of key terms and language 
  • Understanding of implicit and explicit bias - our own and systemic
  • Thought-provoking personal reflection and discussion
  • Examples and statistics of how Fatphobia shows up in media, healthcare, and the workplace
  • Tangible examples of how to be a better ally at work and in our personal lives

Hosted By: This workshop is hosted by Priyanka Saju who is a writer, speaker, and facilitator on fatphobia and dismantling anti-fat discrimination. Priyanka is a body acceptance activist who is committed to creating a safer, more inclusive world for everyone - no matter their size.

In the meanwhile we'll build you a customized Wavy dashboard where you can see and manage all your bookings and invites, and your attendees will be able to RSVP and add in any necessary additional information, like dietary requirements or delivery addresses.

We'll send you automated reminders by email the day before, and hour before, to let you know it's when time to enjoy your experience, and we'll be on hand to ensure everything goes smoothly and help you out if you need anything.
After the experience, we'll send all the attendees a quick survey, and draw up a report in your Wavy dashboard where you'll be able to see all the anonymized feedback and get a sense of how your experience went.

And the best part? It doesn't stop there!
