Launched in 1999 by editor/journalist, Foluke Akinlose MBE, PRECIOUS, is the leading online magazine and network for women of colour in the UK. Our aim: to profile and celebrate the professional, personal, and entrepreneurial achievements of women of colour.
Precious features a lively mix of content on arts and culture, beauty, business and career profiles. We also have a growing social network at www.thepreciousnetwork.com
We host a number of events throughout the year, our flagship event being The Precious Awards, (www.preciousawards.com) which celebrate the achievements of women of colour in business and those women making great strides within the workplace.
Positive people doing their own thing inspire us. There is so much talent out there, we want to play our part in exposing it and we hope that people see Precious as a vehicle to global success.
