Meet four employees that shared their stories and experiences working at Disney.

Patricia, Manager, HR Business Partner – Spain

“At Disney, being able to express your uniqueness with the feeling of being accepted is something that makes me thrive and be comfortable in my own skin. I have built empathy, personally and professionally, due to the relationships I’ve made in this company. Be curious and ask questions. Take the opportunity to learn and get to know people! Build relationships and extend you horizons!”

Ugo, Product Engagement Manager – EMEA, Disney+ Product & Operations

“Disney really focuses on developing their employees and giving you room to spread your wings – I can truly say I’ve been empowered to deliver my best work whilst being actively challenged to develop and grow within the business.”

“Representation matters and is powerful, it’s part of the reason why I’m at The Walt Disney Company today. Seeing successful people in senior leadership roles that looked like me, was the catalytic that further sparked my ambition to want to be a successful media professional too. If they could do it, I knew I could too.”

Sharita, Director Studio Distribution, Benelux

“For me, a Disney difference is the encouragement to help and support others whenever they face challenges. Knowing that it also works the other way around, makes me feel safe and supported. Also, Disney has presence and success in many industries and with that puts smiles on the faces of so many different consumers of all ages and backgrounds. That’s truly unique!”

“Disney inspires and touches diverse people and communities all over the world and with the DEI commitment these fans feel represented, heard and included. For the sense of belonging of Disney cast members it’s also very important because it reflects the commitment of Disney Leadership to create a safe working environment where everyone feels included and all different voices are heard.”
