About Look Different

MTV's Emmy Award-winning "Look Different" campaign helps America's youth better recognize and challenge hidden racial, gender and anti-LGBT biases, empowering them to create a more equal future. While Millennials are widely considered the most diverse and tolerant generation in history, 94% see bias in their lives and 8 in 10 believe bias is at the root of a lot of the world's problems. Today, discrimination based on race, gender and sexual orientation can be quite subtle - and most young people feel ill-equipped to respond when they see it. To support our audience in reaching towards a world without prejudice, MTV has built a coalition of the foremost authorities and tackles this issue on all of our platforms, including on-air programming, social media engagement, innovative digital tools and much more.
