SORT BY Relevancy
In honor of Black History Month Real Talk Live 216 will be discussing the stereotypes and portrayal of Minorities in Film, Media and Television. How are movies, actress, actors nominated by the Actor's Guild, Hollywood and the Oscars. Has the roles for minorities change or still the same. What can minorities do to change the image/stereotypes.
This week, my guest, Mary Fernandez, is joining me to talk about MentorNet, an organization dedicated to advancing women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields. Mentoring helps women in remain in STEM careers and also be successful. Part of the challenge is gender, but another is race and culture and Mary will talk about her own story of how mentoring helped her overcome her challenges as a Latina woman in STEM and how MentorNet now is helping students of diverse backgrounds succeed.
Mary Fernandez was named CEO of MentorNet in 2013 and since that time has renewed the organization’s commitment to its core values. Drawing upon the past decade’s revolutionary changes in social communication and significant advances in mentoring social science, Fernandez and her team have completely re-envisioned MentorNet’s program and platform and advocate for scaling their initiatives significantly, as they are convinced that their new methodology will help all STEM students.
A leader and active volunteer, Fernandez earned a PhD in Computer Science from Princeton University and is the author of more than 50 scholarly publications. She holds five patents and has mentored more than 20 STEM protégés. In 2012 Fernandez was recognized by AT&T as a ‘Champion of Diversity,’ a distinction awarded annually to only five of AT&T’s more than 300,000 employees, and in 2011 she received HENAAC’s ‘Outstanding Technical Achievement-Industry’ award.

"The Larry Love Show"
Research consistently shows that minorities are more likely than whites to view law enforcement with suspicion and distrust. Minorities frequently report that the police disproportionately single them out because of their race or ethnicity says the National Institute of Justice. Join us this Tuesday as we talk to experts take live calls,and try to come to a solution on this topic. Also visit us @ www.realtalkrobert.com and follow us on twitter @realtalkrobert.
In a country where minorities form 10% of the population, it’s astounding that more than 1 million are living in crippling poverty as a result of governments Employment Equity Act, which effectively excludes them from obtaining employment, and the ability to provide for their families. Children are malnourished and sick, the parents dehumanized and desperate. They live in tents and makeshift structures, battling winds, rain, hail and heat in unhygienic circumstances, without water, or ablution facilities in most cases, and reliant on the community to provide meals and clothing. In a lot of instances, meals are days apart, survival is a losing battle, this is totally unacceptable!
BUY A BRICK, BUILD A FUTURE CAMPAIGN
We have 3 farms available, and we are attempting to raise funds to build homes for our people. The farms are self-sustaining, with the exception of certain items, and can expand to provide for more people. We plan to house, feed and employ them; give them back their self-respect and dignity. A skills based program has been implemented and will be run by Adriaan Hattingh. Those not wanting to relocate can be trained and placed in jobs.
The farms are situated in;
Pretoria 30 hectares of prime land, with Eskom, certified fountain water and irrigation, a haven in the city (Steven Rossouw),
Between Aliwal-North and Queenstown 1200 hectares, with Eskom, water, irrigation, outbuildings (being converted into suitable accommodation) caves with bushman drawings , and a large dam in a beautiful, tranquil, secluded setting, (Tienie Henning)
And Zeerust, 17 ha with water, irrigation, a river and trees, idyllic (Adriaan Hattingh). These farmers have opened their hearts and homes to change circumstances for our people, but they can’t do it alone, we need donations, we need you.
A No-Nonsense Guide for Minorities in Business
Dr. Brewer talks with Keith R. Wyche, author of Good Is NOT Enough - And Other Unwritten Rules For Minority Professionals. In recent decades, corporate America has gotten better at recruiting minority talent. But despite their education and hard work, too many African Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans still find unique obstacles on the path to senior management. And there are too few minority mentors available to help them understand and overcome these challenges.
Keith R. Wyche, a division president at a Fortune 500 company, is the perfect mentor for ambitious minority businesspeople at all levels. His book is filled with thought-provoking insights and practical advice based on his own experiences and those of the many people he has counseled.
