The commemoration at the Disney's Coronado Springs Convention Center began at 11:00 AM and ended around 3:00 in the afternoon
This very significant event was the initiative of PULSE, a Diversity and Inclusion Resource Group at the Walt Disney World Resort for Cast Members interested in the cultural, educational, and professional development of Cast Members of African and Caribbean descent.
This cultural event dedicated to the Haitian Flag Day was an opportunity to highlight the Haitian culture through its art, painting, food and music.
Flag day for Haïtians everywhere is a special day. Though a National event, the flag represents a symbol for the country and its independence. The two-tone flag, made up of blue and red for Haitians is also a reminder of the strength that comes from unity.

It was a Haitian ambiance where steaming Haitian dishes were exclusively made for the day.

May Pulse continue to flourish more in culture, education and the development of Cast members from Africa and the Caribbean. Their development would facilitate their integration into the American society and for the benefit of Walt Disney World. For we must not forget the PULSE motto: Lead, Serve and Excel.
