This workshop will focus on the threats to the traveling woman and arms her with knowledge and skills to act rather than react.

Panelists include both female pilots and flight attendants. Topics to be discussed include: Importance of Pre-trip Planning, Travel Security–Hotel & Street Safety Tips, Transportation Safety–Public & Private, Preventing Security for Women–Reducing Your Exposure, and Refusing to Become a Victim–Fighting Tips & Techniques.
