Put Advocacy in Practice this August Recess
By Emily Feltren
The Reference Desk
More than one co-worker has asked me to join my law firm's on-site Weight Watchers program, and I've declined each time. I continue to be asked, and I don't know how to make it understood that I don't want to participate without being rude or seeming like a snob. I just don't want to do it, and I'm also concerned about whether or not my co-workers could share information outside of the meetings. What can I do?
