Anti-Racism, Fatphobia, and Dietetics presented by Marissa Alexander, RD of Uproot Consulting

Live Workshop: Anti-Racism, Fatphobia, and Dietetics

This webinar will focus on anti-racism in different areas of dietetics, and how it overlaps with fat phobia and weight bias. It will include discussions on commonly used terminology, intersectionality, the racist history of fat phobia, and how we may be unintentionally participating in problematic behaviour. The webinar will encourage self-reflection and participation to better understand our role in perpetuating racism in dietetics and how we can shift to anti-racism.

Please note that this is a 90-minute webinar. Due to the sensitive nature of the topics discussed and to encourage a safer space for discussion, this webinar will NOT be recorded.

    Marissa Alexander

    Marissa Alexander (she/they) is a registered dietitian who is passionate about anti-racism, food security,
    and equity. Living and working on the traditional and unceded territory of the Lheidli T’enneh, she has had the honour of working alongside 55 First Nations communities in northern BC. She is also privileged to be able to connect with many different peoples and communities through her anti-racism consulting
    work.

    In her very little spare time, she is working on her Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on equity and cultural studies. As someone who is thankful to be a part of many, often oppressed, communities she is always looking for opportunity to elevate voices and lived experiences. When she is not focused on social justice work, she likes to spend time with family, friends, and her dog Ru. You can often find her crafting or creating, and she tries to include humour in her work as much as possible.
