Addressing Body Shape and Size Stigma in Libraries: Getting Started (Infopeople)    Online

As library workers, we recognize the significance of creating environments that embrace diversity and prioritize the well-being of all patrons and staff. In this webinar we will be starting the conversation around how body shape and size stigma affect our society. We will be focusing on libraries, and how we can create services, spaces, and workplaces that better support people of diverse body shapes and sizes. We will describe the significance of weight stigma, its historical context, and its intersection with other identities, offering insights into the barriers it creates. Together we will discuss individual and organizational strategies to combat body shape and size stigma and support all library users and workers. By fostering awareness and implementing actionable steps, we aim to cultivate environments where everyone feels respected, valued, and empowered to access library resources and services without fear of judgment or discrimination. Join us as we initiate this essential conversation and take meaningful steps towards creating equitable and inclusive libraries for all.
