Families In Global Transition (FIGT)

Families in Global Transition (www.figt.org)is a welcoming forum for globally mobile individuals, families, and those working with them. We 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. The Washington DC Metro Area Affiliate was launched in February 2018 with a mission to: - Bring together representatives of the corporate, diplomatic, academic, religious and military sectors present in the DC area to share their cross-cultural coping strategies and expertise; - Continue the work of FIGT beyond its annual conference by meeting locally to support and educate professionals who work to improve the lives of families in global transition; - Provide resources in various forms from expert panels to gatherings that are topical to the issues experienced by globally mobile individuals and families.
