Kathleen Antonia Tarr

Kathleen Antonia Tarr is a University of California, Berkeley and Harvard Law School graduate, Lecturer in Stanford’s Program in Writing and Rhetoric, Writing Specialist for Stanford’s Public Policy Program, and former Skadden Fellow (“legal Peace Corps”). While a Skadden Fellow, Kathleen published a law review article on veterans disabled by military service cited by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and her most recent law review article “Bias and the Business of Show: Employment Discrimination in the ‘Entertainment’ Industry” was touted by film director, screenwriter, and activist Maria Giese as “the MOST IMPORTANT DOCUMENT published on the issue of discriminatory hiring practices in Hollywood since The New York Times published the ACLU letter to the EEOC in May 2015.”

Bias and the Business of Show evolved from Kathleen’s General Session presentation at the 2015 State Bar of California Annual Meeting with special guests Amy Pietz and Edward James Olmos and is companion to her annual Symposium on Equity in the Entertainment Industry and Awards at Stanford University. Named after her documentary on (un)equal employment opportunities in the entertainment industry “Getting Played: who’s playing you?!” (Honorable Mention recipient at the 2010 International Black Women’s Film Festival), Kathleen’s symposium expanded to Getting PlayedX in 2017, the first event of its kind – hosted by Salesforce (San Francisco) – and breaking ground on similar symposia at other companies and organizations throughout the globe. Her advanced course at Stanford, The Last Hopi On Earth: The Rhetoric of Entertainment Inequity, provides additional opportunities for students to be involved in these conversations.

Kathleen’s many speaking engagements include ASTRONOMMO: Speculative Fiction on Film + Black Women at which her narrative short “Early Aliens” was an Official Selection in 2015. Her narrative short “I Have All The Feelings” was an Official Selection at the 2014 International Black Women’s Film Festival. Kathleen’s acting credits encompass stage, film, commercials, television, and video games including “House M.D.,” Sundance award winner “Dopamine,” and “Sim City.” She and Mark Oliver collaborate as Novel Approach LLC, and Kathleen is founder of What The … Productions.
