The session will examine issues related to body image and size diversity. We will discuss society's messages about body image and body size, and how this impacts inclusivity at the University of Iowa. As a result of this session, participants will (a) be able to identify sizeism and how that impacts the UI community, (b) understand their own perceptions and biases with regard to body size, and (c) develop strategies for decreasing body shame and body size discrimination.


Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact in advance at
