In Conversation: Caroline Randall Williams and Debra Martin Chase
When Nashville member Caroline Randall Williams went viral this June for her arresting New York Times op-ed You Want a Confederate Monument? My Body Is a Confederate Monument, Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel swiftly signed her to talent and media agency WME
Williams invites you into a very personal conversation with her mentor Debra Martin Chase, the first black female producer to have a deal at a major studio, who currently has a deal with Universal Television and who has also helped launch the careers of Shonda Rhimes, Anne Hathaway and more. In this conversation, they break down the career advice Chase has given over the years about the importance of finding a voice that is crafted by your own life experiences, and how you have to be ready when the opportunity comes. Listen in to hear their thoughts about representation, allyship and how there is no such thing as an overnight success.
