Empower Your Team with DEI Workshops, Corporate Coaching, and Inspiring Keynotes

We are living in an aggressively anti-fat world.

Sizeism continues to be an acceptable- and in most states, a perfectly legal- form of discrimination. And while many organizations have made steps toward advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in their workplaces, virtually no one is talking about sizeism, fatphobia and bias based on weight. Even the most capable and experienced DEI consulting firms are completely overlooking it.

As someone who worked in nonprofit leadership for almost two decades, I understand that fostering a thriving workplace culture is key to achieving long-term success. I also know first-hand that anti-fat bias negatively impacts not only large-bodied individuals in the workforce like myself, but also the companies that employ us. Fat folks are routinely left out of career opportunities, decisions, and advancement, are wrongfully terminated at higher rates, and fat women are earning less than thin women- who are already earning less than men. Organizations suffer through employees’ loss of motivation (quiet quitting), reduced productivity, and higher healthcare costs as a result of the harmful impacts of bias.

 

So what can we do about it?

 

While I do a lot of this work with individuals, body liberation extends beyond personal journeys; it’s also about creating welcoming and safe spaces, including the workplace. Through my corporate consulting, training, and speaking services, I advocate for professional environments that celebrate and embrace body size diversity, recognizing the importance of a truly diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace for the well-being of both your employees and your company.

This is a call to action for:

$
Organizations to create and foster workspaces and office cultures that are safe and welcoming for all, including employees on the higher end of the body size spectrum.
$
Individuals in leadership positions to make necessary changes in your workplace.
$
Colleagues in smaller bodies to become allies and use your privilege to support your peers in larger bodies.
$
Fat folks to confidently take up space at work and insist that others take notice of our value, worthiness, and contributions.
$
Every employee to champion a workplace that acknowledges the importance of diversity in body size and uplifts and empowers every individual.
$
All to exist proudly and unapologetically in your body, with an expectation of equitable treatment and respect.

DEI Workshop

Taking Up Space in the Workplace:

Why Body Size Diversity Has to Be Part of Our DEI Efforts

Many organizations have committed to making Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) part of their business strategy, in part in response to the larger conversations about race. But even as we take this necessary step forward in our new cultural landscape, there is one marginalized identity that is consistently overlooked and a form of discrimination that continues to be acceptable.

This unique and interactive training focuses on body size diversity, adding a necessary component to your company’s DEI efforts and tackling difficult conversations with care. It examines sizeism and its impact in the workplace, the broad and harmful impacts of diet culture, the ways in which anti-fat bias negatively impacts not only large-bodied individuals in the workforce, but also the companies that employ them, and what we can do about it, both as individuals and as a community interested in advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for everyone.

I’m a therapist-turned-coach with 20 years of combined experience in trauma therapy, family and group counseling, child welfare, social work, and disordered eating. As your coach, I also bring expertise in Health at Every Size®, Intuitive Eating, Body Trust®, and Internal Family Systems to our work together.

I am the mama of two young daughters, a role that has energized me more than anything else to do everything I can to spread the anti-diet and fat liberation messages, not just in our little family bubble, but into our surrounding community and beyond, with them, through them, and on behalf of them.
