The NEW Dove Self-Esteem Project appearance discrimination lesson was developed as an extension lesson to the existing 5-lesson program, Confident Me, designed for educators to use in the classroom. This new lesson provides a thoughtful understanding for students around appearance discrimination – including racism, sexism, hair discrimination, ableism, colorism/shadeism and sizeism – and how these things can impact body confidence and self-esteem. Students are then provided resources and support on how to respond when they see or experience appearance discrimination, and why it is so important to foster an inclusive and welcoming environment in the classroom and beyond.
The Appearance Discrimination lesson was designed and academically validated to effectively and positively impact body confidence and self-esteem in youth.
