This week on “Connect the Dots”, we’ll explore the Walt Disney Company’s tense relationship with conservative politicians as the company attempts to advocate for its LGBTQ+ employees in the wake of Florida’s Parent Rights Education Bill, also known as the “Don’t Say Gay” proposal, which was signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis in March.  We spoke with Ciara Torres-Spelliscy, a professor of corporate governance at Stetson University, who explained how Disney's relationship with politicians has fostered privileges for the company. We also heard from Blake Simons, a former Disney Parks employee and a student of corporate law and Savannah Bell, another former Disney employee and LGBTQ+ Florida resident.
