Business in the Community are looking for female participants to be photographed in their Same But Different project, aiming to shine a light on the diversity of women in the workplace.
Photographic project ‘Same but Different’ provides a positive platform to celebrate the diversity of women in the workplace. This combats the influences of not just sex and gender but also by other aspects such as identity, sexual orientation, culture, disability, religion, class background and health.
By celebrating women who feel their voices aren’t heard in their community, Same but Different want to challenge media and employer perceptions of the working woman, in order to help them understand and help combat the challenges women encounter revolving around the workplace.
Same but Different is offering a unique opportunity to aid and change employer’s efforts to progress and support all women whilst also taking their identities into account.
In stage one of their project, Same but Different want to interview and photograph inspirational women who will feature in a series of self-portraits, photographed by celebrated photographer Leonora Saunders. The organisation are looking for a selection of diverse women who would like to be photographed for this phase of the project.
Then, the second phase of the project will include personal contributions from thousands of women in the UK. Same but Different will be launching an online platform where women will be able to post their own images and stories to share with the pipeline. The project is calling for women to gather their own stories/images that represent their careers and career experiences.
