I was invited to be on a panel at Weapons of Mass Creation Festival in Cleveland, OH, so I travelled domestically to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was paid 200 USD to speak. The event did not pay for my travel and accommodation. My employer did not pay my travel expenses, and I was working while speaking at the event. It took me 1 day to prepare for my 60 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a woman who has been speaking for 1 year. This was a for profit event.
