The PRECIOUS Awards, which are in their 10th year, celebrate the success stories of women of colour in business, leadership and work. Throughout the evening, guests will have the opportunity to meet and network with inspiring individuals in the legal world, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), financial and legal services, as well as the arts and creative industries.
The evening event will begin with a drinks reception in the RIBA Gallery overlooking Portland Place, followed by a three-course dinner served in the Florence Hall.
Foluke Akinlose MBE, Founder of the PRECIOUS Awards, says: “This year is a very exciting year for the PRECIOUS Awards. It’s our 10th year of celebrating the success stories of women of colour in the UK. The hunt for a fitting venue to celebrate this important milestone was started with a bit of trepidation. I was worried we would not be able to find somewhere fitting that could encapsulate the supportive, warm and positive environment that the awards emits.
RIBA is the perfect venue for us, its simple elegance enhances and really fits in with the celebratory event we are working towards. I am really looking forward to seeing our finalists, sponsors and guests soaking up the atmosphere of this beautiful historic venue.”
RIBA Venues Sales & Marketing Manager Kirsten Kruls adds: “We are really excited to welcome the PRECIOUS Awards to RIBA Venues and to celebrate the success and achievements of so many women from across the country.”
