Star and Disney Introduces Resource Group For Women, LGBTQ Employees

In a bid to foster an equal, inclusive, and bias-free workplace, Star & Disney India has introduced Business Employee Resource Groups (BERGs), a new diversity resource group for women and LGBTQ+ employees.


The groups will represent and support the diverse communities that make up the workforce and are open to all employees.


Each BERG offers opportunities to network and connects with peers, participate in outreach and mentoring programs, acquire new skills, and enhance leadership capabilities.


The company has also launched the #BreakTheLoop, an impactful campaign, that vocalizes the internal fears that arise from socialization and inspires women to challenge them.


Amita Maheshwari, Head – Human Resources, APAC & India, Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution, The Walt Disney Company said “We, at Star & Disney India, are deeply committed to imbibing diverse and inclusive ethos, reflected not just in our stories and shows, but also across our workplace. We are focused on attracting and developing a high-performing workforce at every level and in the process striking a fine gender balance. As India’s preferred broadcaster and streaming platform, we aim to enrich the viewing experience through authentic and inclusive stories, while nurturing a culture where everyone is seen, heard, and represented.”


Star & Disney India has initiated BERGs to focus on a multidimensional approach to cultivate a culture that thrives on compassion, equality, openness, and transparency. Intensifying its focus on improving the gender balance, the organisation aims to increase the representation of women in leadership roles to spearhead its next phase of growth.
