NEW - SJE 2.0 - Brown Bag Lunch Discussion Series

Friday, February 9, 2018
12:00 - 1:00pm
Location: Dimond Library Room 352

Register for this discussion

We invite all past participants of the Social Justice Educator (SJE) trainings to register for these discussions 

Over the years participants of SJE trainings have indicated a genuine interest in further professional development and meaningful dialogue on concepts introduced in SJE.  The intention of this dialogue series is to invite you to unpack an issue.

For the February discussion we will focus on Fatphobia 101: Examining Size Diversity and Weight Stigma in American Culture
In this interactive workshop, we will explore the social, cultural and political implications of weight in our society.  Topics covered will include: the facilitators’ personal experiences with this topic; size diversity and fat identity; fatphobic prejudice and systemic weightism in education, employment and medicine; and the Health at Every Size (HAES) movement.  We will also examine how and why weight and weightism are key social justice issues of our time

Through this dialogic process we will engage in deeper learning that allows for questions, sharing, curiosity, discovering multiple perspectives, and relationship building with campus colleagues on social justice issues that are timely and thought provoking.

Once you register, you will receive links for two articles and a brief video.  Participants are expected to read and prepare questions/thoughts prior to attending the discussion.
