The board appointed by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida to govern Walt Disney
World Resort in Florida will abolish all in-house diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, formerly known as the Reedy Creek Improvement District, was reconstituted by the Florida state legislature, which replaced the district’s existing board with DeSantis’ appointees. The board will abolish “all DEI programs” and DEI-based contractor requirements, according to a press release.
