FIGT Patron Sponsors Insured Nomads, International Therapist Directory, and SundaeBean tell us why they choose to support FIGT and its community.
Families in Global Transition is deeply appreciative of all of its sponsors. We asked Patron Sponsors who recently renewed their digital sponsorship to tell us a little bit about themselves, and why they choose to support FIGT and its global community.
Insured Nomads is the first insurtech in global benefits. They are empowering the international assignee, family, and traveler through the powerful insurance they need combined with the technology, informatics, people, and service that restore the confidence and efficiency called for in international insurance plans.
As a social impact venture, they generously fund the work of Not For Sale in combatting human trafficking around the world.
Together, they can protect the traveler and the most vulnerable. Bring your group into Insured Nomads.
“We support Families in Global Transition because we firmly believe in the work the organization does in the chapters around the world, the webinars, and the annual conference. The voice and generational impact of the subject matter experts in this tribe are essential for the new nomad community that has formed in this world in transition. Thank you FIGT for the great work you do!”
—Andrew Jernigan, CEO & Co-Founder of Insured Nomads (2015 Pollock Scholar)
The International Therapist Directory is an online global listing of professional therapists, counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists interested in providing culturally sensitive cross-cultural treatment and care for today’s international TCK and expatriate community.
Over 250 therapists in at least 40 countries are listed. The directory is intended to be a resource for internationally minded people looking for a culturally sensitive therapist and for therapists themselves to identify and connect with one another for peer support and professional development.
Most therapists listed speak English. For a nominal annual membership fee, therapists may list their practice in the directory and access a private ITD Listserv to build relationships.
“The FIGT community is a brilliant example of internationally minded people cooperating between sectors as it has been providing rich opportunities for connection, listening, and learning from one another for over two decades. My experience with FIGT over the years has been deeply encouraging. I am so pleased to be a sponsor of this thoughtful and engaging organization.
—Josh Sandoz, Founder & Curator, International Therapist Directory
