Blacxellence — Candace Oxley
Can I start by saying how great Candace Oxley is? Yes, yes I can. Candace is a fantastic and wonderful woman. She’s extremely driven, smart and talented.
I had the pleasure of meeting her at the start of the year for an interview that was featured her website, ‘In Other News’.
In Other News is a news outlet dedicated to sharing inspiring stories and reporting positive Black British news. They report on businesses, initiatives and individuals across a wide spectrum of professions and industries to highlight the varied spaces we occupy as a community. We are making progressive steps to positive change in the UK, and they believe that should be more widely celebrated.
What Candace has created and maintained with iON is incredible. We are so used to seeing our stories being told by people that don’t care about, value or love us and iON reframes that focus to put us in a more deserving light. It goes beyond tokenism and focuses on real work that is being done in our community for the good of the people.
I am thankful that there are people like Candace out there that can see problems and tackle them head on with well executed plans. Thank you, Candace.
