Entertainment Industry Educator in Chief at Google
“Julie Ann Crommett joined Google in December 2013 and is currently the Entertainment Industry Educator in Chief, working to shift perceptions of computer science in mainstream media so as to encourage more diversity in the field (a position she created).
Previously, she was at NBCUniversal where she was responsible for behind-the-camera diversity initiatives including the NBCU Directing Fellowship Program and Writers on the Verge. Throughout her time in Hollywood, Julie Ann initiated a cross-company Hispanic episode of NBC’s Grimm, was an Entertainment Associate at Universal Cable Productions, an associate producer on the Animal Planet series, I’m Alive and a production intern in DVD/Promotions at Pixar Animation Studios.
Julie Ann is originally from Atlanta, Ga., via San Juan, Puerto Rico (Cuban too!), and graduated with a B.A. degree in English and American literature from Harvard University. She currently serves on the board of the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP), Women in Animation (WIA), the Barbie Global Advisory Council and on several media advisory councils. In September 2015, Julie Ann was honored with ADCOLOR’s prestigious Innovator Award for her work in shifting on-screen perceptions, and Univision’s Flama named her one of the “”7 Latinos to Look Out for in 2016.”””
