Families in Global Transition 2019 Conference

Connect. Lead. Change.
Welcoming new perspectives to inspire and support people in transition

Submission Deadline September 30, 2018

We are pleased to announce our 2019 Annual Conference #FIGT2019 will be held  at NIST International School in Bangkok, Thailand, April 26-28, 2019. 

Let us celebrate that FIGT is moving to Southeast Asia for the first time ever. We are excited to welcome new and old experts and professionals to the conference from all over the world.

We invite globally mobile individuals as well as those who sponsor, support, and study them, to share their perspectives on connection, leadership, and change related to this lifestyle.

The program of #FIGT2019 welcomes proposals that touch on one or more of the following areas:

Connect: How the challenges and advantages of virtual and physical connections (or disconnections) impact values, families, careers, identities, friends, traditions, languages, cultures, and rituals.

Lead: Ways of inspiring and cultivating leadership, qualities of leaders, and research on the subject matter as directly relevant to people in global transition.

Change: How global mobility drives personal and professional change, innovative thinking, and adaptation to a constantly shifting environment.

The 2019 Families in Global Transition (FIGT) conference will continue to build bridges between communities and sectors as expressed in our mission statement:

FIGT is a welcoming forum for globally mobile individuals, families, and those working with them. Our mission is to promote cross-sector connections for sharing research and developing best practices that support the growth, success, and well-being of people crossing cultures around the world.
