United States: Women on the Global Road
WOMEN ON THE GLOBAL ROAD
Now an established presence in the management workforce and as traveling executives, women may find themselves on the road as much as their male counterparts in seeking to further business opportunities. However, specific gender concerns do need addressing when it comes to conducting business and travel in a country, place, or culture other than one's own. Arming oneself with information in advance will do wonders in overcoming many a difficult situation. The best sources from which to derive helpful hints are other female travelers. Seek them out and inquire of them what to expect, most especially those who have been to the destination to which you will travel. In a pinch, their tips may turn out to be your saving grace. Similarly, upon arrival it is in a woman's interest to observe female behavior in the country of travel to learn what is appropriate and how best to blend in.
