PRECIOUS Nights at the British Library
Join us at the first of a new series of monthly PRECIOUS Networking events in partnership with the British Library.
The PRECIOUS Awards was founded in 2007 to celebrate and applaud the professional achievements of women of colour in the UK. The organisation has a dynamic and passionate following, gained over eleven years of bringing brilliant women into the spotlight and celebrating the ‘Best of British’ by recognising and rewarding exceptional determination, innovation, entrepreneurial skills across multiple sectors, and inspiring women of colour to succeed in business and professional life.
Over the years, the Awards have grown into a flagship event characterised by open and generous sharing of stories, strategies, challenges, and experiences: a room full of exceptional women in business all ‘paying it forward’ and creating a unique atmosphere of collaboration and motivation. Now, we’ve decided that once a year just isn’t enough and so we’re thrilled to be launching a new series of networking events that capture the PRECIOUS Awards spirit all year round.
PRECIOUS Nights will launch on February 1st and is a new monthly event that gives you the opportunity to hear from previous Precious Awards winners about their business journey, catch up with old connections and build your network with new contacts. Each event will feature a panel of previous PRECIOUS Awards category winners and finalists sharing their insight and top-tips.
In 2012, Precious was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia and went on to have intensive treatment which left her skin feeling compromised. The need for safe and natural remedies inspired her to create her own natural skincare range -Etieno.
