RespectAbility’s Entertainment Media Consulting Team
Vanni Le is the first-ever Entertainment Outreach Program Manager at RespectAbility. Le brings brand strategy and program management experience from both the entertainment and nonprofit fields, having previously worked at the Walt Disney Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment, the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, March of Dimes, and most recently A+E Networks.
Le strives to effect social change and champion diversity and inclusion in industries with underrepresented communities. Her passion for diverse representation in media (and lack thereof) is her drive for pursuing a career in entertainment. As someone with low vision and a recent diagnosis of ADHD that was previously misdiagnosed as mild anxiety disorders, she also recognizes the importance of authentic portrayals of disabilities and general mental health in media. At RespectAbility, Le oversees the day-to-day operations of the Entertainment and News Media team and consults on projects for major studios and networks such as Disney, Sony, and Netflix.
