Issa Rae to Headline Content Marketing World 2024

We’re thrilled to welcome Issa Rae to the Content Marketing World 2024 keynote stage, where she’ll share how her passion for storytelling and entrepreneurial spirit sparked a remarkable journey from YouTube pioneer to celebrated writer, actor, and producer.

Issa excels at crafting narratives that influence culture and deeply resonate with audiences. Committed to amplifying diverse voices and promoting inclusivity, Issa will empower and inspire CMWorld attendees to prioritize authentic storytelling.

With her own unique flare and infectious sense of humor, Issa first garnered attention for her award-winning web series and the accompanying New York Times best-seller, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. She created and starred in the Peabody-award-winning HBO show, Insecure, for which she garnered multiple Emmy® and two Golden Globe® nominations. Issa has also made her mark on the big screen, starring in The Photograph, The Lovebirds, American Fiction, and Barbie.

In 2020, she formed HOORAE, a multi-faceted media company that develops content across mediums to continue breaking boundaries in storytelling and representation. HOORAE is comprised of HOORAE Media for film, tv and digital; Raedio, the music label, music supervision company, and “audio everywhere” company; and ColorCreative, its management division. Via HOORAE’s WarnerMedia deal, Issa has also expanded her Executive Producer slate with the Emmy- award nominated A Black Lady Sketch Show and the fan-favorite series, Rap SH*T.

Issa is also part of a new launch designed to bring more equity to the creator economy. Called Ensemble, the branded entertainment studio aims to connect diverse talented and influential creators with brands, platforms, and publishers.

Issa remains committed to her roots in South LA through the location of HOORAE headquarters, her work with the non-profit organization Destination Crenshaw, and her ownership in Hilltop Cafe + Kitchen. She also co-owns the Black owned and operated hair care line, Sienna Naturals, a vegan hair care line grounded in sustainability and intentionality.

Issa Rae promises to bring energy and illuminating insights to the Content Marketing World stage this October, and we would love to have you there with us!
