The annual PRECIOUS Awards is the biggest event in the PRECIOUS calendar, now in its 12th year. We are passionate about recognising success in the workplace and inspiring women of colour to launch their own businesses.

The PRECIOUS Awards is a powerful way to get stories of success heard, recognised and applauded. The Awards, growing in stature with each passing year, attracts an audience of the influential to the aspirational, across all sections of society from Theresa May, Nick Clegg, Baroness Amos to the thousands of dedicated and avid PRECIOUS fans, eager to celebrate inspiring women. Winners and finalists of PRECIOUS Awards stand out from the crowd; the distinction sends a resoundingly positive message to customers and attracts

new business. The PRECIOUS Awards is supported by the wider business community, government and the press, and brings credibility and honour to all category nominees.

“A wonderful opportunity”
