Ava DuVernay: “Follow the White Guys”

Career Tip from Ava DuVernay: 'Follow the White Guys'

At this year’s BlogHer conference in New York City, Ava DuVernay delivered a keynote in which she gave advice on how to get ahead. In an industry where the acclaimed Selma director is a minority, she described using “the White guys” as a lead. “You gotta follow the White guys. Truly. They’ve got this thing wired,” DuVernay said. “Too often, we live within their games, so why would you not study what works? Take away the bad stuff, because there’s a lot, and use the savvy interesting stuff and figure out how they can apply. It’s a good one for the ladies.”
