March 13-15, 2020
The International School Bangkok (ISB), Bangkok, Thailand
Join us for the 22nd Annual Families in Global Transition Conference:
Embracing and Bridging Differences
Global mobility offers a realm of differences. Some we may expect - people, place, language, culture, religion. Some we may not - differences in education, work styles, employment, relationship, health and economic status, leisure opportunities and life stages. How we embrace and bridge those differences not only impacts our personal and professional lives and wellbeing, but also those who surround us.
We look forward to welcoming those who have experienced or are currently experiencing the challenges that stem from encountering difference and are open to learning for personal, family, community or global growth, success and wellbeing.
We are excited to connect with new and old experts and professionals coming to the conference from all over the world. This will be our second year in Bangkok, and we hope to build on the great success of the first one, which included a positive and welcome increase in the number of Asian experiences.
The 2020 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.
