IT'S OUR TIME.
‘Don’t sleep on’ is a term used to describe a person who should not be underestimated (Urban Dictionary, March 2009). In our case, it’s a term which warns not to underestimate the Global Majority.
WHAT IS DON’T SLEEP ON US?
We bring people from minoritised backgrounds together in a way which hasn’t been done before. DON’T SLEEP ON US is networking done differently.
Our events are exhilarating with a dancefloor and DJ, laugh out loud funny moment and an anti-cliquey vibe. Feedback from our community shows our audience feels heard, seen and understood - a feeling of being at home.
When we started in April 2018, our aim was to leave everyone feeling like they can take on the world. To send a message from our community that we will no longer be underestimated at work and in wider society.
This was the start of many large scale events. DON’T SLEEP ON US is now a thriving community of over 1500 people having attended at least one event, and a newsletter reaching over 700 change makers. You can watch some short videos of the events here.
WHAT WE DO
We curate moments for sparks of inspiration and exchange of energy, so that we can stay motivated as a community.
Coming in 2022.
