Regular IAYB readers know that one of my mandates is to promote positive body image messages. I’m very excited to announce the Body Image Summit, a free online conference from July 22 to 26, 2013.
Organized by Dr. Dawn Dalili, this five-day interview series brings the best, brightest, and most inspiring minds to those who are ready to challenge their assumptions and break free from body judgement, shame and struggle.
Five speakers – including Melanie Klein, Anna Guest-Jelley (IAYB friends and co-editors of the forthcoming anthology, Yoga + Body Image), Melody Moore, Emily Rosen and Rachel Cole – will share their experiences and research. Some of the topics they’ll cover are pleasure, health, media influence, inspiration and celebration.
