WHY IS THE INTERNATIONAL SLUMBER PARTY IMPORTANT TO YOUNG WOMEN OF COLOR?
Young women of color from New York to California, London to Ghana all deserve a special moment to recognize their greatness, sharpen their brilliance, and speak to what matters to them. This endeavor will elevate their voices and promote positive conversations that change the narrative of women of color.
Many cultural and social movements of today focus heavily on the plight of black men and boys, and rightfully so! But what about our girls? At the International Slumber Party, we shine a bright light on the specific issues, interests, and matters of the heart of young black women that often go overlooked or pushed to the side.
Our communities, cities, and nations are strengthened when we invest in the present and future of young women of color. Our intention is for every black girl to leave ISP empowered, with a network of potential mentors, sponsors, and new sister connections with like-minded women of color from around the world.
WHO'S BEHIND THE INTERNATIONAL SLUMBER PARTY?
When phenomenal women leaders and "wonder twins", Dr. Nicole LaBeach and Crystal Khalil join forces, space and opportunity are ACTIVATED for women to walk in their greatness and purpose. As the co-CEOs of Sister Diamonds, LLC, they have assembled an all-star cast of over 100 mentor pairs of college students or recent grads and phenomenal black leaders and professionals to produce the 1st Annual International Slumber Party - not only in record time but a FIRST OF ITS KIND VIRTUAL EVENT for collegiate and emerging talented young black women. We are not planning a party for them; we are planning a party with them.
HOW WILL THE FUNDS RAISED BE USED?
We want to eliminate any cost barriers for young women who need to attend this virtual conference but may not have the means. In the spirit of being their "Sister Diamonds" - as only a diamond can cut another diamond - we want the opportunity to "cut" over 2,500 black girls from ages 18-25, in college, grad school, or recent graduates by providing a scholarship to attend the event.
Forget the ordinary online Zoom meeting! We're anticipating that over 10,000 attendees will enter the virtual world of the International Slumber Party, where all "clicks" will lead to the door of our virtual ISP mansion, the digital venue where the entire event will take place. Funds will also go to support the technology, production, and marketing of the event.
