Overview: During this workshop, participants will learn about systemic body size discrimination.

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in critical self-reflection and exploration regarding weight, body size, and related areas of bias. Additionally, this workshop will provide opportunity to increase acceptance and consider ways to enact change within MSU and the broader community.
