Description
SheTravel will bring you our final webinar of the year, to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

About this Event

On the 25th November, during our ‘Women & Safety: Home, Travel, Abroad’ in partnership with Girls on Travel webinar, we will discuss the place of violence and safety for women at home, on the road and abroad. A confident business woman might still face concerns when travelling, or have a situation at home they are not talking about. And the society you are visiting, might have different social norms and culture to yours.

We will be joined by expert speakers discussing their experience, both personal and professional, at home, during travel and exploration. We will also talk about what abuse is, and how it may manifest both verbally and physically. We will provide information about charities and organisations to contact for support.

During this pandemic, UN Women has alerted countries worldwide that the violence against women has been on the rise, causing a widespread shadow pandemic, affecting girls and women worldwide. We wish to raise awareness and come together as a group to share the knowledge we have.

Theme: Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!

The UN System’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence activities, from 25 November to 10 December, will take place under UN Women 2020 global theme: “Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!”

Speakers

Caroline Neil – Managing Director of RPS Partnership

Christine Dennison – Ocean and Polar Explorer, Expedition Leader, Advocate for Women’s Rights and Environmental Champion

Claire Bull – Director/Lead Trainer at Better Bodies UK

Paulina Neil – Criminal Justice Worker, Support Worker for adult survivors of child sexual abuse, rape or sexual assault

SheTravel

Business and leisure trips often take us to destinations where the culture and traditions differ from our own, and sometimes to locations which carry higher risk to personal safety. That’s why SheTravel, and founder Anna-Liisa Tampuu, decided to bring together women who travel with this women’s–only network. To share experiences, create a secure space to ask questions from a network of fellow travellers and read interesting articles and top tips for female travellers to share information to aid safe travel, wherever in the world their choice of destination may be.

SheTravel is powered by Northcott Global Solutions, a leading Global Emergency Assistance Company, giving SheTravel a wealth of experience, expertise and support to provide information and assistance to all travellers.
