The Next Decade of Disruption: Ashton Womack is Disrupting The News, Comedy & ”Truth”

October 31, 2021

The Next Decade of Disruption is a 3 episode series we've created in partnership with the 2021 3% Conference.  

"I think people dim their light to be accepted into certain areas.  It dims their ideas...and it seems like that is built into Corporate America."

In the third and final episode, Asha sits down with Ashton Womack, Daily Show w/ Trevor Noah Writer and Stand Up Comedian, to discuss the future of news, comedy and inclusivity in the entertainment industry.  

As a staff writer on arguably the most diverse show in late night,  Ashton has seen first hand the difference inclusivity makes across the news stories covered, the broad range of humor and the lives of those behind the scenes.  While most writer's rooms are predominantly white and male, The Daily Show prides itself on giving opportunities to underrepresented talent - or should we say 'emmy-winning' talent!
