#013 For our last episode of this season about the Business Case for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), we are thrilled to welcome Brimbelle Grandcolas, Head of DEI at Disneyland Paris.
Be sure to get your pen and paper out as Brimbelle shares with us concrete tips and examples on how to deliver on a DEI strategy that makes sense both for business and for our society. Brimbelle openly shares her advice because she believes that DEI is not a competitive sport, but rather a team effort. She is convinced that the best way forward is through businesses collaborating and supporting each other in building a more inclusive world all together. At Diversity Secrets, we couldn’t agree more!
Brimbelle explains how DEI ties in to the day-to-day business at Disneyland Paris. Whether it’s building the most inclusive experience or the most representative products, the motto at Disneyland is that magic is for everyone! And for that to happen, Brimbelle stresses the importance of allyship and intersectionality in conducting the DEI strategy, as well as the necessary balance between bottom-up and top-down initiatives, as well as short-term and long-term projects.
Finally, as someone with experience in the non-profit sector and at the United Nations, Brimbelle shares with us her conviction: public and private sectors must work hand in hand for us to see truly impactful DEI!
