TIAUNA JACKSON: What is it really like to work in Hollywood? Lessons on racism & resilience
The first time I recorded this podcast my computer shut down and we lost all files but luckily Tiauna Jackson is very kind and allowed us to record it a second time, just as she was launching the Black Agent Network.  Tiauna Jackson is a Talent and Literary Agent for The Jackson Agency. Headquartered in Century City, California, Ms. Jackson built her agency from the ground up within the entertainment industry’s most competitive market, Los Angeles. Tiauna decided to start her own agency after finding barriers to entry not only for herself, but for artist and writers of color, LGBTQ+ identifying, and Senior Citizens. She made history by becoming the first Writers Guild of America franchise in Atlanta, Georgia; and is believed to be the first known Black woman with 100% ownership of her agency to become a WGA franchise in Los Angeles. With her agency dedicated to the underestimated, underrepresented, and the underserved, Jackson applies a “root for the underdog” mentality to fostering the careers of emerging artists. She looks forward to providing representation that matters to the exceptionally talented artists of the world. She was featured in the New York Times, Medium, Oz Magazine, and Arizona Informant for her commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion while facing adversity through resilience.
