The Walt Disney Family Museum’s DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility) initiative aims to create an inclusive, accessible, and empowering workplace for museum employees, while also prioritizing providing an inclusive, accessible, and educational space for the public. The Walt Disney Family Museum is committed to reaching these goals by seeking employees’ input. The museum also strives to acknowledge and discuss how we inform the public about Walt’s Disney’s story and the events that occurred during this lifetime, including elements that may have a negative or harmful impact. We seek to address all aspects of the history surrounding Walt's lifetime with sensitivity, providing educational resources to the public, and encouraging conversations about these topics that connect to the public in the context of today's modern world.
