PANELIST BIO

Gabrielle Union is an actress, producer, best-selling author, and Time 100 cover honoree. Union is currently producing 'The Idea of You' for Amazon Prime Video, starring Anne Hathaway. She recently wrapped production on Apple TV+’s “Truth Be Told”, starring alongside Octavia Spencer. 

She will next be seen in the A24 drama 'The Inspection', opposite Jeremy Pope, which premiered to acclaim at the 2022 Toronto Film Festival ahead of its theatrical release on November 18, 2022. Union is also featured in the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures animated film 'Strange World' releasing November 23, 2022.

In 2021, Gabrielle released her children’s book, “Shady Baby”, with her husband Dwyane Wade. The follow up “Shady Baby Feels” will be released in August 2022. Union’s autobiographical books, “We’re Going To Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated and True,” and “You Got Anything Stronger?” both became New York Times best sellers.

In 2018, Union formed her production company I’ll Have Another, with the goal of telling authentic stories that feature the point of views of marginalized communities. I’ll Have Another develops broadcast, cable, and streaming series for television, as well as feature films.

Union pioneers businesses centered around inclusion, accessibility, and affordability. In 2020, she launched her haircare brand “Flawless by Gabrielle Union” and in 2021, Union and her husband launched their sustainable baby care line “Proudly”, dedicated to the unique skin care needs of children of color. She is also a co-founder of the healthy children’s snack brand Bitsy’s.
