With the ink still wet on her bachelor's degree in communications from UCLA, Christine Cadena landed her first job at Nordstrom, where the relationship-building, product-development, consumer-marketing and sourcing skills she honed paved the way for a successful 20-year career at The Walt Disney Co., No. 33 in The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity®.
"The commitment to guest service was also the ideal training ground for my career at Disney," she recalls. Her Disney career began at Disney Store and led to expanded marketing, merchandising and creative responsibilities.
In January, Cadena was appointed to the newly created position of senior vice president of multicultural initiatives at Walt Disney Studios, responsible for strategy, measurement and implementation of diversity and inclusion initiatives across all of the studio's functions. This includes HR, creative development, marketing, theatrical productions, music, and home-entertainment products, as well as distribution "where we really touch the customer," she says.
Although still in the strategic-planning stages, one of her first multicultural initiatives was an integrated Latino marketing campaign of "Toy Story 3" that "not only spanned publicity, we looked at every aspect of the business to create unique messaging," she says. Reporting a strong box-office opening weekend, "our Hispanic campaign definitely played a role."
Beyond her customer-driven talents, what makes Cadena ideal for this diversity-management role is her diversity of thought and experience. "I see myself as more than a Japanese-American woman," says Cadena.
