Inclusive Storytelling - From Disney to NBC and Beyond "Lunch Club" Conversation
Do you want to be part of a world where the images and stories (and those who tell them) fairly reflect the world as it is and no child will have to wonder their place in it? Join us for a conversation with Julie Ann Crommett or JA for short.
JA has been working in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion space for over a decade leading disruptive, systemic change across media and tech. As Founder and CEO of Collective Moxie, Julie Ann works with organizations large and small on revolutionizing their DEI strategies through inclusive storytelling practices, accountability and internal/external community partnership. She was most recently Vice President of Multicultural Audience Engagement at The Walt Disney Studios spearheading efforts to diversify talent in front of and behind the camera, connect creative projects more closely to the communities they touch, and build a more inclusive culture within the Studios. Her team contributed to many projects including ENCANTO, SOUL, COCO, BLACK PANTHER, WEST SIDE STORY and RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON as well as launching the Disney Launchpad: Shorts Incubator, an industry-leading program guaranteeing up to six directors from underrepresented backgrounds the opportunity to produce a short film for Disney+. Outside Disney, she serves on the boards for Hispanic Federation, Ideas United, GA Latino Film Alliance, NALIP (National Association of Latino Independent Producers), and Women in Animation. A proud Puerto Rican and Cuban American, Julie Ann was raised in Atlanta, GA and earned her BA in English at Harvard University.
Join our community of emerging filmmakers. The session is free and will be interactive with a live Q&A conversation on Zoom.
