Research participation - Obesity discrimination in the workplace


 

Research request!

Would you be willing to talk about your weight and work? Have you previously experienced or are you currently experiencing obesity stigma/discrimination in the workplace?

We would love you to share your views and experiences at work and are interested in interviewing a range of people who work in a variety of roles and sectors.

Obesity discrimination at work is shown in a range of ways and research suggests that it is present at almost every stage of the employment cycle. Despite this, research exploring how obesity discrimination is experienced in the workplace is lacking. We are currently conducting a three-phase UK based research programme to address this gap. 

If you would be willing to participate in this research, anonymously, by taking part in a 30-45 minute telephone interview in May please contact me on the email address below. Individual responses will be anonymous and confidential. 

To participate you need to:

  • Currently be employed in the UK
  • Have a Body Mass Index of 30 or more (to calculate take your weight in kilograms and divide it by the square of your height in metres – or use an online calculator
