Last week at The Walt Disney Company’s Annual Shareholder Meeting in Kansas City, President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Iger announced the Heroes Work Here initiative to hire, train and support returning veterans.
Disney will provide at least 1,000 jobs and career opportunities for returning U.S. veterans over the next three years. They will also be supporting military families and veterans during their transition into civilian life, and launch a national public awareness campaign to encourage all employers across the U.S. to hire veterans.
The Heroes Work Here initiative includes all segments of The Walt Disney Company including ESPN, the Disney-ABC Television Group, Disney Consumer Products, The Walt Disney Studios, and Disney Parks and Resorts. The company will be hosting career fairs and participating in events designed to showcase opportunities for returning military personnel.
