It's time for a conference that centers around diverse stories, people, and lived experiences. It’s time for a conference that is less about academia and more about the actual people the data is talking about. By sharing our stories we let people know they aren’t alone. Stories create a connection to the material that no amount of data or graphs will ever convey. Our Vision for this conference is to give those who have braved the path already, those who have overcome many obstacles to find a place of peace, understanding, acceptance, neutrality and yes often love for their bodies to use their voice and share their stories with others.
Register for this conference now!! Starts January 18th 2021

Angela Meadows is a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow specializing in predictors of how higher-weight people respond to the stigma they encounter in their daily lives, whether by internalizing their low status or by rejecting and challenging devaluation. She got her PhD in Psychology in 2018 from the University of Birmingham, UK and completed a one-year ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Exeter, UK, before moving to Western in October 2019. In 2013, she accidentally founded what is now the Annual International Weight Stigma Conference and is still a bit bewildered by it all, but very proud that this conference brings together people from all over the world who care about weight stigma, even if they can’t always agree with each other about anything else. She is a proponent of Health at Every Size and an anti-stigma activist. She writes and blogs as herself and as Never Diet Again UK, and rants at length on the subject to anyone who will listen to her.
In this episode we talk about Angela's diet history, how she got into stigma research, the weight stigma conference and how we need to to research with people not to them
Please note that we talk about the Weight Stigma conference that was to be held in Aukland, NZ in June 2020 which has since been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic
