    I’m looking for organizational training for physical diversity; including, but not necessarily limited to, size acceptance. Any idea for tools and training that can be used to promote a healthy, respectful environment for staff and the public would be appreciated. This could include speakers (although there’s really no budget), DVDs, webinars or other online resources.

    I've seen Harvard's Project Implicit and just found a size diversity toolkit on NAAFA's website. If anyone has seen what's included in that, I'd love to hear more.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can offer. I really appreciate it!

    Email Marilyn Wann, she does weight diversity talks for organizations on a regular basis. It shouldn't be hard to find her email address if you google her name and the name of her book/website fatso. I'm sure she'd be happy to give you tips on this topic.
