Life at Disney Celebrates Women’s History Month – Power and Persistence. Women’s History Month is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean The Walt Disney Company ends celebrating HerStory. Today Disney goes behind the scenes with stories of power and persistence.

March is Women’s History Month, and at Disney, we’re celebrating women’s voices and experiences through the power of our unparalleled storytelling, iconic brands, creative minds, and innovative technologies. We’re thrilled to share the stories of a few of our female employees across ESPN, National Geographic and Corporate who speak to the importance of the power and persistence of women in the world.

As lead video editor at ESPN, Rachel’s purpose lies in bringing the needs and beauty of women and queer communities to the worldwide leader in sports. 

It brings me to tears to see the incredible things women create with compassion and respect,” said Rachel. According to Rachel, being women leaders in the workplace means “having to work twice as hard to be seen or yell twice as loud to be heard.” But her strides for women have left everyone asking, “What we’re about to do next.”

Rachel continues to set the bar by challenging the next generation of creative women leaders and storytellers to become familiar with their own intuition. “It will never steer you wrong,” Rachel says. “Be bold, be authentic, and speak up in rooms where your voice differs from everyone else’s. Just keep going.”

“[Women’s History Month] serves as a beautiful reminder to celebrate ourselves and the women that surround us while we advocate for a more inclusive future,” said Hannah. “For me, that means shouting from the rooftops how lucky I am for all of the formidable women I have in my life!”

Throughout her career, Hannah has found her own way to celebrate herself and women everywhere, leaning into her ear for sound in all its forms. As manager of music, she devotes her time to running the creative music department for National Geographic. “I have the unique privilege of lending my knowledge and expertise to help my colleagues use storytelling through music to enhance their powerful storytelling,” she said.

For her, music is a vital element in connecting with audiences. The ability to play a part in cultivating that meaningful connection means everything, and she encourages all women to do the same on their own terms. “Embrace change,” she said. “Always be willing to learn and grow, and celebrate the little wins.”

“This time of year makes me pause and remember not to take these changes for granted,” said Lindsay, Associate Communication Specialist for Talent Acquisition Marketing. “As I show up to work, vote in my local elections, and express myself, I am grateful for the women who persevered and pushed boundaries that made all of these things possible.”

Inspired by the revolutionary women of yesterday and today, Lindsay is unearthing even more possibilities for young women in the workplace as she holds a magnifying glass to Disney’s work with nonprofits and Historically Black Colleges & Universities to share with employees across the company. “I get to be a storyteller and fulfill one of my childhood dreams,” she said. “When I think about my career at Disney, I’m proud to say I’ve been surrounded by women in leadership throughout my journey.”
