Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The Walt Disney Company is committed to developing and retaining a diverse workforce, fostering a company culture that is welcoming and respectful, creating content and experiences that resonate with our global audiences, and collaborating with community organizations to make our industries more accessible to all.


We are focused on developing, engaging, and retaining a diverse workforce and leadership team because the more our workforce reflects the diversity of our consumers worldwide, the better and more authentically we are able to serve those consumers.

Transparency & Accountability

Achieving our goals demands transparency and accountability. From our culture to our content and experiences, we are working together to translate our intentions into actions. We have greatly increased transparency around our diversity, equity, and inclusion metrics, including representation of women and people of color at different levels both in front of and behind the camera in our most recent Workforce Diversity Dashboard and Content Representation Dashboard.

* Charitable giving that we report includes grants specifically directed towards historically underrepresented and protected communities, including the Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans/Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ community, People with Disabilities, Veterans and Women. We also include grants to organizations where a percentage of their services reach underrepresented and protected communities. If the organization spends a majority of their efforts on these communities, we count the entire grant and if the organization does not spend a majority, we count a proration of the grant. For grants to these two types of organizations, we rely on their self-reported percentages regarding communities served. On a sample basis, we validate the percentages that are reported.
