Keynote | Demystifying Diet Culture
Are you surrounded by diet culture and don't even know it? Find out with Emily Contois as she combines insights of food history and critical media studies to demystify the diet culture that surrounds us in our everyday life.
- Discover the history of the thin ideal.
- Learn how everything from food advertising to yogurt cup design communicates messages about femininity and “perfect” bodies.
- Unpack what “guilt free” and “sinfully delicious” really mean—and why we should never again utter these phrases.
- Learn where these concepts come from, how they hold their power, and ways to take steps toward breaking free from them.
Take a deep dive into all of Emily's fascinating work here!
Breakfast & Coffee
sponsored by The Terminal Cafe
Panel 1: BODY ACCEPTANCE
Join six unique women from diverse backgrounds and experiences as they share how they came to a place of body acceptance. You’ll hear stories from body positive change-makers, mental health experts, fitness professionals, and social media influencers. Together with the panelists, you’ll explore the intersections of body image and culture, faith, patriarchy, race, and health during a powerful session of truth telling that will leave you forever changed.
Panel 2: MENTAL HEALTH
Join a psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, fitness professional, and business coach as they share how they engage and wrestle with mental health in their work and their personal lives. They’ll be discussing the connections between mental health and physical health, including gut issues, diets and disordered eating, depression and anxiety, and more. Learn about the breakthroughs panelists have made in their own lives and supported in the lives of their patients and clients, by taking charge of their mental health.

Panel 3: Making Peace with Food
You know that diets make people less healthy, and the idea of not dieting sounds like a dream, but what does this anti-diet, intuitive thing actually look like in different people’s lives? This panel is your answer. Hear from a variety of experiences, including former “clean eating” evangelists, former intuitive eating skeptics, people living with PCOS and thyroid disease, health experts, and more. Laugh, cry, and be inspired as you learn how women are overcoming and thriving as they make peace with food.
