Prepare in advance what to expect, not only in terms of business, but attitude of the local culture toward women.
Behave and dress conservatively; it is your first and basic step toward gaining respect.
Maintain a sense of humor. A foreign country has many oddities. Relieve some of the stress with a humorous outlook.
If a member of the other delegation becomes a problem or nuisance, take him aside and inform him that it makes you uncomfortable, or tell another member of his delegation to put a stop to it.
Exhibit tolerance and understanding for the other culture.
If you are a team leader, prepare your delegation in advance to treat you in a matter-of-fact, supportive fashion. A reaction from a delegation unaccustomed to working with females in authority may be derailed a bit if they observe your role is nothing but routine.
Generational attitude differences may exist toward women. Prepare to adjust to them.
Professional behavior, a respect for local traditions, and an in-demand service or product will assist you as a businesswoman.
