About Divas of Colour
Divas of Colour is the largest gathering of world’s most influential women from around the globe. A special day to recognise, reward and discover the best of women’s contributions. The 4th annual event, to be held on 18th March 2017 at Kia Oval is set to be the largest ever,  tagged ‘Slay in Health’ in honour of one of our biggest supporters and original partner, Dr Nkem Ezeilo, who passed away recently from breast cancer. This year, the event’s focus is on educating and raising awareness on gynaecological cancers with our chosen charity, Cysters – advocates on the issues of gynaecological well being and women’s health in general.
