This is a recorded webinar of a live event. 



Diet culture is a system of beliefs and standards that praises and rewards thin bodies, while also attaching one’s worth to their body size. The beliefs and standards are everywhere and interwoven throughout many facets of our lives. We can’t move in and out of seasons or change years without being reminded of diet culture’s presence, and pressures. While operating under the guise of health and wellness, diet culture is anything but healthy and well. In fact, it’s downright oppressive. This webinar will address ways in which diet culture oppresses marginalized groups and why it’s important to be aware of how this might show up in our work with ourselves and our clients.



At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  1. Evaluate ways in which diet culture impacts their work
  2. Advocate for healthier behaviors that empower themselves and clients
