Our group has a strong set of values which informs our thoughts, words and actions. All members uphold these values, and lead by example; behaving with the highest levels of integrity is fundamental to who we are, and we strongly believe that our decisions have the power to create a better future.
We are a proudly multicultural group, who strongly believe in inclusion. We welcome all members, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, socioeconomic status and political perspectives. We are a truly diverse group of womxn, who proudly unite under the shared love of solo female travel, and respect for one another. We collaborate effectively with people of diverse backgrounds and cultures, and believe in breaking down cultural barriers to move towards a global society. Creating a culture of warmth and belonging, where everyone is welcome, is a cornerstone value of this group.
Womxn (Noun): Inclusive term we use to welcome all womxn, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, beliefs, sexuality, or other minority. We recognize that there are many different ways to be a womxn, and this club is a safe space where your gender will be respected, your pronouns used correctly, and where every voice is considered with equal weight.
We’re kick-ass womxn who defy social norms, challenge the status quo, and have the courage to forge our own independent path. We dare to be different, have a warrior spirit, and have the courage to live our best life. We are fiercely authentic, and use our passion for travel to energize, engage and inspire one another.
We are open minded, tolerant and value diversity in people, ideas, and personal style. We nurture and embrace differing perspectives, listen to one another, and believe that cultural diversity is our greatest superpower.
We strive to show a deep respect for all human beings despite our differences, and for the communities in which they live. We embrace working with people of different backgrounds, cultures, and thinking styles as a necessity for personal growth.
We strive to minimize our negative impact on the environment as we travel, and build social value where-ever we go. We are keenly aware of our impact as travelers, and believe that responsible tourism should be mutually beneficial to both the traveler and the destination.
We aim to make a positive impact on local communities, and immerse ourselves in the local culture in a meaningful way. We act as responsible global citizens by serving and supporting local experience, and are compelled to nurture a positive impact, where-ever we go.
While we are fiercely independent womxn, who might undertake travel solo, at the end of the day we come together to stand united and support each other.
We are one team, and we accelerate each other in pursuit of our mission to travel solo safely and on our terms. We break down barriers, share information, insight and advice, and respect other members for their knowledge, skills and experience as both individuals and team members.
