1. EMBRACE - Movie and Discussion

Program: Professional Development

Dates: 4/17/2017

New
Embrace uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future, as well as redefine and rewrite the ideals of beauty. The goal is to harness and facilitate positive body image activism by encouraging women to be more accepting of who they are, to use positive language regarding their bodies and others, and to prioritize health before beauty. A funny, touching, at times gut wrenching but above all, life changing documentary, the heart of Embrace is Taryn's story of how she went from a body hater to a body lover. The movie is 90 minutes long, and we will spend the rest of our time together having large and small group discussion about how this message impacts women across the district, from staff to students, and what we can do to change this message. Staff of all genders and teaching levels are encouraged to attend. Click here to view a trailer of the movie: https://bodyimagemovement.com/embrace-the-documentary/
