Juleyka Lantigua-Williams

FOUNDER/CEO

In 2017, Juleyka founded a production company, Lantigua Williams & Co., after 18+ years in media (NPR, The Atlantic, Random House). Its mission is to support and amplify the work of creators from the margins in digital audio and film. Lantigua-Williams has made inclusion a central theme in her life’s work, while endeavoring to fully understand her own experiences as a hyphenated American.

Our founder delivered the closing keynote address at the inaugural Sound Education Conference at Harvard Divinity School. Tittled “In Podlandia, Citizenship Calls for Intentionality,” her comments focused on how podcasters can make the design and execution of their shows in ways that promote thoughtful leadership, improved audience definition, creative autonomy, and measurable successes throughout the creative process.
