Congregate. Collaborate. Celebrate.
What a Woman! UK is the vision of Annique and Syeshia, two young Black women united in their desire to highlight the many achievements of ‘everyday’ Black women.
Frustrated with the minimal and mostly negative portrayals of Black women in the British media and the lack of networking events outside of the City district in London, Annique and Syeshia decided to hold an accessible and affordable event which put Black women first. A place where women of Black origin could congregate, collaborate and celebrate their #BlackGirlMagic.
And so What a Woman! UK was born!
Launched in 2014, What a Woman! UK brings together women and men from all backgrounds to showcase and celebrate the diversity, potential and power of Black women in the UK and abroad.
