For 2024’s iteration of MadameNoire and HelloBeautiful’s annual series Women to Know, we knew we wanted to celebrate the people who help make the joys of film and television possible. To create art is to create magic. This year, we spotlight Hollywood Executive’s changing the face of cinema.

Five Black executives sit down for an exclusive roundtable discussion about the power of diverse filmmaking. Each of these women sees the importance of ushering new voices to the forefront. As some of the most powerful women in Hollywood right now, they’re doing it and they’re doing it well.
