We are a group of South Asian Slashies who celebrate "non-traditional" career paths and seek to redefine professional success. Our goal is to create a diverse, collaborative space amongst creatives and enthusiasts who want to be a part of the South-Asian Slashie movement. #SLASHIESUMMIT


Slashies are generally members of the millennial demographic, who choose to include various ‘side hustles’ in their professional titles to which they devote their time—in addition to their nine-to-five.

2022 Slashie Summit Recap
