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.

Join us in a conversation with Teneyse Williams, co-founder of Dapper Dads Magazine in a conversation about small business ownership and entrepreneurship.
Accordingly to NPR, although the national unemployment rate has fallen steadily in recent months, youth unemployment remains high, and the jobless rate is even higher among young minorities. For young people between the ages of 16 and 24, unemployment is more than twice the national rate, at 14.2 percent. For African-Americans, that rate jumps to 21.4 percent.
Our conversation tonight will highlight a young entrepreneur as a way to inspire our youth to consider entrepreneurship as a viable career option and to be optimistic about their future. We want to encourage them to embrace a can-do attitude in the face of high unemployment statistics, adversity or misfortune. Also, we want to remind them that when life gives them lemons, which is a metaphor for bitterness and disappoint, that they have the potential to create an opportunity for themselves where they can turn those lemons into lemonade to make it sweeter and advantageous to them.

Tonight on Ernest Radio Network, it's The Ernest Experience Radio Show.
Buckle up, or strap on, because we're going to talk about sex, but we're covering it on a few different levels. First up - we are going to talk about a recent video that is going viral, of a young black man testifying in church that he is no longer gay, he likes women, etc. People are quite divided on their attitudes toward the content. What does Ernest have to say about it, having went through pray-the-gay-away type therapy himself? You'll hear it all, in full.
In the second set, why is sex still such a taboo topic in the U.S? Sex is an intrinsic part of us as human beings, yet most people have a horrible, or near non-existent, sex life. What is the missing link in all that? Ernest and the crew talks about that.
In Shootin' The Shit, we'll briefly talk about how the KKK is wanting to diversify and include minorities in its numbers. It's a collective "WHAT THE FUQ?". We'll talk about it briefly.
All this plus NPR news, Accuweather forecast, the ERN Listening Lounge, and your phone calls. 1.347.989.1942 - the phones will be open.
