According to Fortune, The Walt Disney Company is the most admired company in the entertainment industry for 2016, ranking 5th overall. Sallie Krawcheck, Chair of Ellevate Network and Former President of Bank of America’s Global Wealth & Investment Management understands the value of integrity, independent thinking, and admiration. During the huge financial downturn, Sallie was identified as the Last Honest Analyst on Wall Street. Through her struggles, she persevered while balancing work and raising children. During the Global Leadership Summit of August 2015, Sallie stated that her children were a source of confirmation for her. She knew that if she worked every day as if your children are watching you, she would make the most admirable decisions.
Working at Disney, I recently brought my children to see Blizzard Beach. Their response was phenomenal and filled me with pride. My daughter couldn’t wait to get back to school and let her teacher know that her mom worked at one of the coolest places in the world! My kids have asked to go back nearly every day since their visit. I am so grateful for places like Disney that inspire so much happiness and awe in people. While Disney has the fun job of entertaining people, being admirable can be challenging. I strive to be a great role model, to seek out my dream career and inspire my family.
