Join us for a delicious afternoon tea at The Banking Hall, London, as we celebrate the success stories of some of the UK's most exciting talent.

We are also proud to be showcasing young achievement as we celebrate young girls aged 7-17 with the inaugural PRECIOUS Girls Awards.

Book your place at what will be one of the most positive and uplifting events of the year as we applaud achievement and uncover those inspirational stories that need to be told.

What’s Our Mission?
To inspire, encourage and recognise successful women of colour in UK business.

What’s Our Vision?
A world where women of colour are visible, valued, recognised and influential in all areas of business, public and corporate life. And where girls and women of colour have no ceilings to their dreams.

“I founded PRECIOUS Magazine in 1999. It was the first digital magazine aimed at women in the UK and its aim was to celebrate and share the success stories of women of colour in the UK. I met so many fantastic hard working businesswomen in my role as founder of PRECIOUS, these unsung heroines that just get on with the day to day challenges of running their businesses. Yet despite being invited to a range of awards ceremonies celebrating women in business, I never saw any women of colour being given recognition on the podium. I became frustrated at the situation, then annoyed and then I took action. I decided to create an event that commemorated the work and truly focused on their achievements. That’s how the PRECIOUS Awards were born. “Foluke Akinlose
