Christy Haubegger is Executive Vice President, Chief Enterprise Inclusion Officer, WarnerMedia.
Recognized for advancing diverse representation in the entertainment industry, Haubegger leads WarnerMedia’s efforts to help its global businesses capitalize on the outsized opportunities represented by underserved, diverse audiences. She is also responsible for furthering diversity, inclusion and equity across the organization’s workforce, so it more closely reflects the consumers and fanbases the company serves. Additionally, Haubegger works cross-divisionally to support and facilitate WarnerMedia’s overall mission to deliver the world’s best stories and most engaging content by empowering unique and underrepresented voices.
Haubegger joins WarnerMedia from Creative Artists Agency (CAA) where she spent 14 years leading the company’s drive to become the market leader in the representation of women and people of color, as well as transforming the workforce to become the most diverse and inclusive agency in the entertainment business. Under Haubegger’s leadership, CAA launched CAA Amplify, an invitation-only annual event convening high-level multicultural artists and leaders, as well as the Amplify Database, the industry’s first searchable database of television writers of color. During her tenure, the agency grew its diverse roster more than 1400% and according to USC’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the agency now represents the largest share of female directors and African- American directors in the motion picture business.
Upon graduating from Stanford Law School, Haubegger founded Latina magazine in 1996. She moved into the world of entertainment in 2002 and worked as a film producer on Chasing Papi (20th Century Fox) and Oscar-winner James L. Brooks’ romantic comedy Spanglish (Columbia Pictures).
Haubegger serves on the boards of Management Leadership for Tomorrow (ml4t.org), a non-profit organization that works to increase the number of minority business leaders, as well as women’s retailer, RetailWinds (NYSE: RTW), and Hudson Pacific Properties (NYSE: HPP). Haubegger is also a founding member of TIME’S UP, an initiative that addresses systemic inequality and injustice in the workplace.
