The Walt Disney Company Leadership

    Thought it funny how your “circle of friends” are all like you. Maybe you are the one who is not being fair…

    Your “OpEds” are all crap. Slapping “OpEd” on the front of what amounts to a blog post and nothing more is just stupid.

      And things that should be posted as opinions or comments get by like its fact ie. The parks opening itm is a fansite! I probably know more than them as a cm! Which btw is nothing except no govenor is agreeing to sign off on proposals yet and we all just sit and wait which is fine many of us are enjoying this family time we would never see otherwise!

    Would loved if you delved a little deeper. While Disney leadership is slowly becoming increasingly female, there are still precious few people of color in high profile positions. It would have been great if you explored the reasons why a more diverse leadership would benefit the company. I’m sure the editors wanted a concise OpEd but this topic deserves length. Good work with what was written tho!

    Please stop. I’m sick and tired of seeing articles like these, race and gender do NOT matter when it comes to getting promoted. They are all qualified to do the job, it has NOTHING to do with the color of their skin or what’s between their legs.

    The Walt Disney Company is an Equal Opportunity Employer who employs everyone and will NEVER discriminate on the basis of race, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability.

    We are ALL of us equal because we are HUMAN BEINGS, and we need to start respecting each other for WHO we are as people on the inside, not what our skin colors are or what our genders are. It’s getting old now, time to move on. There’s are many great women in leadership positions at Disney and you KNOW it to be true.

      Race and gender does matter when getting promoted. Sociological data and studies show this to be true. Is Disney victim to this? Maybe not as hard as other companies, but it is true. Does this mean they are racists or sexists? Not exactly. There are many factors that come into play but gender and race are some.

    It’s an enigma to me as to why this is even an issue.

    I’m a white Male of irish descent. I’m all for equality and giving anyone a chance as long as they are qualified. I don’t believe in hiring or promoting just because of race or color. That in my mind goes against everything American. I believe you should be able to do anything you want to do. You may have to work harder to get there then someone else. But should Disney hire someone just because they’re a certain race or color or male or female, NO. That would not be equal opportunity in America
