Travel has changed immeasurably in 2020. But what hasn’t changed is our need for connection, for new challenges, and for following our curiosity.

We’ve all been wondering how to travel in this new world. Or, if we should travel at all.

While these conversations are universal, the decisions being made are very personal. So we decided to explore these conversations with diverse women who travel in a variety of ways.

We wanted to know how — or IF — they’re traveling now. And we wanted to explore the many ways we could potentially travel now or when it’s safe and we’re ready to get back out there.

The Wanderful Woman Summit

To cover all the ways folks are considering traveling right now, we reached out to our global network and started the conversation.

We hosted the Wanderful Woman Summit to help women travel safely and confidently in this new world.

From road trips to small-town adventures, from budgeting under new circumstances to getting outdoors for the first time…we brought together experts in travel to discuss the pros, cons, and options available.

We also dedicated an entire session to anti-racism in travel.

After our first Moving Forward anti-racism town hall event, we wanted to continue the conversation within the greater context of travel. We believe that every traveler should strive to be an anti-racist!
