Truth Or Myth: Size Doesn'T Matter?
There is a pervasive anti-fat bias in society, and inherently, in organizations. However, despite evidence of negative outcomes of the stigma and stereotypes experienced by fat persons, there has been little and nascent work done to disrupt the bias and reduce it. Our roles as management educators provide the opportunity to expand the notion of who deserves social justice and what it means to support body size equity. In this exercise, we present an experiential learning experience educators can use to reduce students’, undergraduate and graduate, explicit and implicit anti-fat biases.
