This course focuses on a gender perspective of travel safety. The course is developed based on the perception, that risks and fears of women and non-binary people are sometimes neglected in regular safety training programmes. The aim is to empower women with the mental and physical skills required when travelling or working in other cultural contexts and in countries with larger gaps in gender rights. While women in most cases are not more vulnerable than men, they do face other kinds of risks than men, that requires specific attention. Some of the fears are pushed on women by concerned family, friends, or colleagues and an open and frank discussion will help put them to rest. Some represent very real risks, that needs to be planned for or dealt with. This course aims to create the forum for both and give women the empowerment to continue travel-ling with reduced anxiety.
Travel&Risk also delivers bespoke training for female travellers, which can also include training in techniques for physical resilience or a broader gender awareness perspective across genders and cultures.
