Sade Banks

Founder and CEO

Hi, I’m Sade, Founder and CEO.

My role has flexed and adapted as the organisation has grown since I founded it in 2016. I too have grown alongside it and it often feels like Sour Lemons is my first baby!

Last year we launched Enabling Environments and I wrote the methodology for why and how we disrupt systemic racism in the cultural sector. We called out for fellow agitators and found a badass team who are hyped by the vision and ready to dismantle. My role now is to create an environment that allows them to thrive and deliver as their best selves without me. I am focussing on the internal culture, making sure we practice what we preach and our external communications, so we share our story and learnings with more people. To truly lead with radical generosity is to prioritise wellbeing and ensure that the work is not delivered at the expense of anyone’s health. 

If you’d like to know more about me in my full glory, you can read my full blog post here or for a more professional vibe, you can check out my LinkedIn profile.
