Carolyn Pearson was recently interviewed by Security Magazine regarding the Women in Business Travel Report, commissioned by her company Maiden-Voyage, a WEConnect International certified women-owned business and Travel Intelligence Network.

Carolyn told Security Magazine: “We live in a risk-filled world where corporates must remain ever-mindful of their duty of care to travelling employees. More women are in senior corporate positions, and more are travelling on business too, often alone. Travel management has changed too. Personalizing the traveler experience is essential to maintain the policy compliance that drives maximum value from corporates’ travel spend, so travel managers are engaging with a more diverse range of stakeholders than ever before in a bid to create travel programs that meet the personal needs of every business traveler. But, as our report shows, there is still much work to be done.”

Some key findings from the study include:

  • 77% of female business travelers say their company’s travel programs should take account of their specific gender needs.
  • 70.02% say travel providers need to try harder to address those needs.
  • 73.4% say their experiences of travel providers affects their policy compliance.
  • 75.3% say their companies should prioritize suppliers who pay special attention to the needs of female travelers.
