The Penn State Health 22-Day Inclusion Challenge – June 8: Conversations about Size and Image 

June 8

The Penn State Health 22-Day Inclusion Challenge
WEEK 2 – Theme: Understanding Differences   

June 8: Conversations about Size and Image 

Body size is an aspect of diversity that is rarely discussed and is one that can be the source of discrimination. According to a January 3, 2019, CNN Business article entitled, “One type of diversity we don’t talk about at work: Body size,” there are stereotypes of obese and overweight people, and women experience the negative impact of these stereotypes more than men.   

Activity: Read that CNN Business article herealso check out a Huffington Post article entitled, “Everything You Know About Obesity is Wrong,” here. Please note, this article contains mature language.   

Please note: Some links may not be accessible on clinical workstations. Employees can view them on a nonclinical workstation or their personal device.
