Only 4.5% of speaking roles in the 100 top-grossing films from 2007 to 2018 featured Latinx actors. Unsurprisingly, only 3% of producers and casting executives during that time period were Latinx. Join us for a conversation with alumni who are working to change who is writing the stories and leading from both in front of and behind the camera in our current media landscape. Felipe Tewes AB ’06, Director of International Originals at Netflix, and Julie Ann Crommett AB ’08, Vice President of Multicultural Audience Engagement at Walt Disney Studios, will share how they entered this field, what's next, and why it's a priority. HLAA VP of Reunions, Glenda M. Aldana Madrid AB '07, and HLAA HGSE Representative, Isamar Vega AB '13, EdM '19, will moderate the conversation. Participants will gain insight into the field of entertainment, learn our panelists’ trajectory, and engage in a Q&A session.
