Diversity in body image image experiences: A panel discussion
Sponsored by Body Banter, Duke Disability Alliance, and NAMI at Duke
How do our various identities intersect with the ways that we perceive our bodies, and why does it matter? Body image issues do NOT discriminate, and sharing stories from diverse perspectives is a strong way to increase visibility of marginalized groups, to provide hope for those who feel alone in their struggles, and to help develop resources that are considerate to the needs of every individual.
Listen to our panelists share their loved experiences and insights, engage in a post-panel discussion on why we should challenge current societal definitions of body image standards, and finally, consider how we can act on these ideas.
