Bio

Julie Ann “JAC” Crommett (she/her/ella) has been working in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) space for over fourteen years 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. In partnership with The Black List and several organizations, Julie Ann spearheaded the creation of the first-ever GA List to amplify writers from and with strong affiliation to the state of Georgia. Previously, she was 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, RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON, and WEST SIDE STORY as well as launching the critically acclaimed 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+. Julie Ann was also instrumental in Disney's library review process leading to a revised content advisory and proactive resources for families to discuss negative stereotypes in media. In partnership with Disney CEO Bob Iger, she launched and co-chaired the company's first-ever Creative Inclusion Council dedicated to increasing inclusion and accountability in Disney's creative endeavors. Before Disney she was Google’s Entertainment Industry Educator in Chief leading their efforts to shift and diversify on-screen perceptions of computer science through storytelling (a position she created) as well as having led Google’s DEI efforts in Latin America. She started her DEI career at NBCUniversal managing behind-the-camera diversity programs including Writers on the Verge and the Directing Fellowship. Julie Ann has been recognized by The Hollywood Reporter’s 35 under 35, Women in Film and Television Atlanta (WIFTA), the IMAGEN Foundation’s Influential Latinos in Entertainment list, and as an ADCOLOR Innovator. She was on the advisory council for the re-launch of Barbie, is a member of BAFTA and the Producers Guild of America, and serves on the boards for the Hispanic Federation, Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, the Woodruff Arts Center (ATL), and Women in Animation. Julie Ann also served as an Adjunct Assistant Professor for Columbia University’s MFA film program and co-created a new mandatory course with her producing partner on inclusive storytelling. A proud Puerto Rican and Cuban American, Julie Ann was raised in Atlanta, GA, and earned her BA in English at Harvard University. A true trivia nerd, she also competed on Jeopardy!
