Across Disney, we cultivate, value, and encourage curiosity, collaboration, and creativity from everyone and we strive to build supportive environments that inspire optimism and drive innovation. We work to create a culture that is welcoming to all, celebrates our unique perspectives, and promotes respect for one another, regardless of identity or background.
Our Commitment to a Culture of Belonging
Our intention is to put the responsibility for an inclusive culture in the hands of our leaders and employees through comprehensive education and engagement efforts.
Business Employee Resource Groups
Disney is proud to support affinity groups and more than 100 BERGs, our voluntary, employee-led groups formed around shared identity, interests, and pursuits. These groups are a key component of nurturing a sense of employee belonging, visibility, and cultural understanding. Employees can network with peers, participate in outreach and mentoring programs, acquire new skills, build leadership capabilities, and develop their careers.
We celebrate affinity months and cultural moments, elevating the voices and stories of employees, talent, producers, fans, and families around the world; engaging employee VoluntEARS; amplifying efforts on social media; and supporting community organizations with social impact grants.
"We will never stop working to make sure Disney is a welcoming place for all."

The Inclusion Key
At our Parks and Resorts, the addition of an Inclusion Key guides our renowned approach to service and demonstrates our deep commitment to making everyone who experiences Disney feel welcome. This approach provides flexibility with respect to forms of personal expression surrounding gender-inclusive hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles, tattoos, and costume choices. These policies enable our cast members to better express their cultures and individuality at work.
