This is our time to connect, laugh and share

Our third annual virtual Holiday Social is on Thursday, December 15 at 6 pm – 7 :30 pm ET. This is an opportunity for all of us to come together, meet women from around the world, and get inspired about travel in 2023. (Please check your local time zone here). 

As with all of our events, we’ll be making a donation to a non-profit as we do with all of our events.  This year, we are inviting you to support supporting Ukrainian Relief projects. You can make a donation to DEC Humanitarian Appeal here or choose your own charity from our Giving Tuesday list. 

Wear your holiday best

To add to the fun, we invite you to wear a beloved item you picked up on your travels (like a sparkly hat, scarf or earrings) and bring a special beverage from your travels.

This event will be recorded so we want you to look your best! Even better if you have something JourneyWoman RED! 

A multi-country zoom call

Not only is this a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded women passionate about travel, it’s also a chance to get to know our Women’s Advisory Council.

In addition to JourneyWoman CEO Carolyn Ray, Rosemary Neave from New Zealand and Dr. Mary Clark from Michigan will be our co-hosts for this event. Joy Fox will be leaving us in high spirits with “I Hope You Dance”, which is about embracing life (full lyrics here).  You don’t want to miss this!
