Two New Disney at Work Podcasts!
Disney at Work offers two new podcasts related to major events happening right now throughout the Walt Disney Company:
The Slow Fall of Bob Chapek, and Disney’s Long Road to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Part I
Two years ago this month Walt Disney World and Disneyland closed its gates. As events were unfolding world-wide Bob Chapek was named the CEO of The Walt Disney Company, replacing Bob Iger. While some highlights stand out, it has been a painful experience for most involved during this time period. Much of this has been played out not just during a time of Covid, but during a time frame that stretches from awareness that Black Lives Matter to the present “Don’t Say Gay” legislation happening. In this we not only look at whether Chapek is the “right fit” as CEO, but we address how an organization that promises to be more active in matters of diversity, equity and inclusion can at times be so far away from the goal. Join us on this podcast: The Slow Fall of Bob Chapek, and Disney’s Long Road to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
The Hastening Fall of Bob Chapek, and Disney’s Long Road to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Part II
In our previous podcast, Part I, we chronicled two years of a pandemic that was highlighted by Covid, the Black Lives Movement, and the Presidential Certification by Congress. Titled similarly, this podcast is Part II, but is now called the hastening fall of Bob Chapek, not the long fall. We now move into the last three months of 2023, which in some ways has been nearly as turbulent as the preceding two years. Decisions in years past to support Republican members of the Florida Legislature have come back to haunt Disney as Governor DeSantis has sought to sign into law a bill referred by many as “Don’t Say Gay”. We will make sense of all of these events, and why they have unravelled the way they have. We will revisit the role of Bob Chapek as CEO of The Walt Disney Company, and how an organization that promises to be more active in matters of diversity, equity and inclusion can at times be so far away from the goal. And finally, as this is a Disney at Work podcast, we’ll offer some thoughts as to what these events mean to you and me and to not only our own workforce experience, but our personal lives. Join us for The Hastening Fall of Bob Chapek, and Disney’s Long Road to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Part II.
