Each session brings together key government and non-government partners to discuss a variety of topics related to the situation, safety,  and well-being of female Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) in this uncertain time. Viewers will also be able to ask questions for the speakers during the live Q&A segment at the end of each program.

The first session, moderated by television host Suzi Entrata-Abrera and internet sensation Kaladkaren Davila, will specifically focus on the situation of women migrant workers, issues of gender-based violence (GBV) during the COVID-19 crisis, the reporting and assistance channels in cases of GBV, and services for women OFWs in the Philippines and abroad. The episode will also touch on the support that they can get as they endure the pandemic.
