Born Worthy: Challenging Diet Culture and the Narratives that Weigh Us Down

Jan 25, 2024 | 7:00pm - 8:00pm (MST)

As we step into a new year, it's common to be bombarded with unhelpful and harmful messages urging us to embark on a journey of constant self-improvement. Join us for an evening of inspiring conversations, self-reflective discussions, and practical tools to help you challenge diet culture and celebrate your inherent worth. It's time to shift the focus from endless improvement to self-love, self-acceptance, and self-care.

Event Highlights

Unveiling the Impact of Diet Culture

Our expert panel, composed of team members from ANAD and students from across the country, will explore the pervasive nature of diet culture and its damaging effects on mental health. With a focus on intersectionality, this discussion will shed light on how various communities are affected and provide guidance on fostering self-acceptance.

Breaking Free from Unrealistic Standards

This interactive session will guide you through practical steps to challenge societal norms and unrealistic body standards. You'll learn strategies to redefine your self-worth beyond appearances and embark on a journey toward self-love and acceptance.

Cultivating Supportive Communities

Join us in exploring the power of supportive communities in combating diet culture and mental health challenges. Breakout sessions will encourage open conversations and connection-building, empowering you to share your experiences, learn from others, and form bonds that reinforce a positive self-image.
