||CleanEpisode No. 15||Feminism and Festivals with Do LaB's Monica Fernandez As Executive Producer and a foundational member of the Do LaB community, Monica Fernandez oversees Lightning In A Bottle's production, while curating a host of the event's creative programming and media. Proud to be a woman in a male dominated industry, she employs an empathetic management style known as “compassionate leadership”, which is instrumental in understanding how individuals think, feel and get motivated. She sees this as an invaluable tool in retaining and grooming talent so that each of her team members have the opportunity to reach their highest potential both in the office and at home. Brown Girls Rising is a partnership with Nylon Espanol to elevate the conversation of feminist action, leadership, community involvement, and culture. "We are always looking at ways to curate and create more diversity in our community." - Monica Fernandez In this episode, we chat with Do LaB’s Executive Producer, Monica Fernandez about how she made a way for herself in a male dominated workplace. She also, goes on to talk about how they advice she gave herself back then probably wouldn’t be the advice she’d give young girls today. “I felt like pulling back my femininity, I started wearing more black and I always wore heels so I can be tall. It helped me be heard but, now looking back I don’t know how I feel about that anymore...” Monica also details one of her experiences with racism and otherness, she goes on to say how that has changed how she shows up in the workplace today. “I want to create an even playing for everybody. Whether it’s an actual playing field or the workplace. I want people to look at people as just people.” Audrey and Yvette talk about their experiences with raves (or lack thereof), how they deal with feminism in the workplace, and growing up with otherness. "I want people to look at people as just people" - Monica FernandezThis episode, Brown Girls Rising Episode 15, can be found at BrownGirlsRising.com or on iTunes.

So much YASSSS
I love hearing stories and tales of common lives and times of us brown girls! I love hearing stories about growing up as a Latina/Latinx and the struggles and joys that come along being part of this beautiful community! I would to hear more stories of brown girl's in the professional world, especially in the creative field. Blessings and much gratitude!
Finding your tribe.
I heard about the podcast through Instagram. Listening to the first episode was such a breath of fresh air. I especially loved the part of every woman being a feminist in their own way ❤️
Finding a tribe for WOC by WOC is amazing. Keep on rising. ✊️
Love the Purpose of this Podcast!
I absolutely love the purpose of this podcast and of the events put on by its two hosts. Having worked in various sectors across the country, I've come to realize the need to promote women of color and showcase their wonderful contributions. The guests have been great and it's refreshing to see Latinas being represented in a non-stereotypical positive light!
My one critique would be for the hosts to allow the guests to speak without interruptions. Perhaps a 5-10 minute chat between Audrey and Yvette would be a great way for them to catch up and talk about personal things before the actual interview.
