FIGT Patron Sponsors Globally Grounded and Resilient Global Transitions recently renewed as Patron Sponsors, while Porch joined us this past year.
Families in Global Transition is deeply appreciative of all of its sponsors. Two Patron Sponsors who recently renewed their digital sponsorship tell us a little bit about themselves, and why they choose to support FIGT and its global community.
Globally Grounded is a consultancy company dedicated to equipping students crossing cultures, their families, and those who educate them to effectively navigate the triumphs and trials associated with living and learning amidst diverse domestic and international cultures.
Through its three priorities of schools (international and local, day and boarding), families, and research, Globally Grounded is driven to improving the emotional, social, and educational outcomes for cross-cultural learners so that living and learning between and among cultures is not an inhibitor but an enhancer of learning for all.
“I travelled across 9 time zones to attend my first FIGT conference and walked into a room where I knew not a single soul. Within three days I had found a home where I could be authentic, understood, valued and allowed to grow. Over the past four years, it’s where I’ve made lifelong friends and professional partnerships beyond my wildest imagination.
“Sponsoring FIGT is my way of saying ‘thank you’ and ensuring that the community, organisation and its mission continue to flourish.”
— Jane Barron, Founder of Globally Grounded
