From the Back Cover:

"Finally, a book that gives vibrant voice to the unique experiences of black women in corporate America. Through their tight research and engaging prose, Ella Bell and Stella Nkomo reveal that race continues to influence professional relationships between black and white women, despite their shared subordinate status vis-à-vis white men. Here are dramatic illustrations of why stereotypes about black women are worth combating-not only as a matter of simple justice, but because of their corrosive effect on the bottom line."
-Derrick A. Bell, Jr., Professor of Law, New York University

"Our Separate Ways provides real-life insight into the challenges we face in creating an equal playing field in corporate America. The perseverance revealed in the stories shows clearly that we can't expect to make real progress in representation if the price remains so high for all those who aspire to achieve."
-Steven Reinemund, President and Chief Operating Officer, PepsiCo, Inc.

"This book is full of wisdom, pain, triumph, and practical solutions. Those of us who have stormed the glass ceiling will identify with the stories of these pioneering leaders. More important, we can learn about the power of solidarity from the experiences of our black sisters who face the 'concrete wall.'"
-Scotty King, Managing Director, Salomon Smith Barney Private Client Division

"Ella Bell and Stella Nkomo have produced an original and powerful work, brilliantly reasoned and well documented. They lay bare the high price that women, and particularly black women, pay in order to succeed in the competitive, take-no-prisoners culture of corporate America."
-Price M. Cobbs, M.D., Psychiatrist, and Founder and President, Pacific Management Systems

"Through Our Separate Ways, I was privileged to receive an insider's view of the personal and work worlds of African-American executive women that, until now, has been unavailable to me. The authors' insights break new ground for theory and practice at the intersection of race, gender, and career development."
-Douglas T. Hall, Director, Executive Development Roundtable, and Professor of Organizational Behavior, School of Management, Boston University
