Food for Thought: How We Talk About Food and Weight and Why It Matters | Jill Campbell
The ever-expanding conversation about conscious language should include the language we use around food. And in a society where food is inextricably linked to dieting, that also involves the way we talk about weight, health, and eating disorders. This session will discuss how we can choose inclusive words and avoid reinforcing stereotypes about these topics. Content note: This session will include mentions of eating disorders and examples of stigmatizing language related to the topics at hand.
