Happy International Women’s Day! Today and everyday, we celebrate the tens of thousands of inspiring #WomenBehindtheMagic all around the world. At Disney, we strive to create a culture where everyone at our company feels a sense of belonging, has their voices heard, their efforts valued and are able to bring their authentic selves to work.
Throughout the month, our teams around the world will unite in a shared focus on gender inclusivity and host exclusive events for cast to celebrate, inspire and empower our Women Behind the Magic! Stay tuned later this month when we share a glimpse into each of our global cast communities, as they unite to honor Women’s History Month.
Today, we are proud to celebrate the next generation of fearless dreamers who are on their way to making history – from storytellers and creatives, to scientists and beyond – we celebrate all of the future magic makers!
And if you’re visiting a Disney Park this month, check out some of our events in honor of International Women’s Day! From a female sergeant leading the Green Army Patrol through Toy Story Land to a female director calling the shots during the “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” at Walt Disney World Resort, you won’t want to miss it!
I appreciate Disney’s company wide efforts to empower ALL their employees. However, I would like to point out that having a woman lead the Green Army Patrol, or direct the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular shouldn’t be so unusual as to constitute a special event. Having those, and other highly visible lead roles, filled by women on a frequent basis would be a fine way to honor the women of the Disney company all year long.
