Our journey

Different Women Different Places (2007) was the first research of its kind to focus on the career and leadership strategies of successful black and ethnic minority women in the United Kingdom and Europe.


The original Different Women, Different Places study was positioned at the nexus of race, ethnicity, gender and leadership. It used an empowering appreciative form of enquiry to investigate the experiences, behaviours, challenges, perceptions and strategies of ethnically diverse women leaders.

With the support of Booz, Allen and Hamilton, Credit Suisse and others, the original Different Women Different research report was released in December 2007.


One of the unique outputs of DWDP1 was the Factor 8™ Framework and 360 Leadership Assessment tool that has now been used by thousands of leaders.  Click below to learn more about Factor 8™ .
