The memo states, “Since joining the company in 2017, Latondra has led the company’s strategic diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, including partnering with stakeholders across the enterprise to amplify stories of the world by people around the world.”

Yes! To all of this. Disney needs to get back to what Disney used to be. This new agenda has driven us all away. We are die hard Disney fans and used to visit the park annually, traveling with our large group. No more. Disney is NOT what we want to support now.

Walt and Roy Disney would be so disappointed in the direction the Company has taken in these last few years. Especially recently. Replace Iger!

Disney reorganization is a typical design to circle the wagons for survival mode. Disney is looking to sell off some previous acquisitions that are not as profitable (ABC and ESPN etc) and Disney is also top heavy so there is some trimming going on.

Trump knows when to file bankruptcy so he doesn't have to pay people.
