Over 3 days in March, Families in Global Transition gathered together with members of internationally mobile families, e.g. corporate, military, diplomatic, missionary, and with those who assist them: human resource personnel, relocation experts, educators and counselors. Together we developed strategies for dealing with challenges of cross-cultural living.
The 2011 Conference program was designed to provide a forum for the exchange of information through educational and non-commercial discussions. FIGT takes pride in offering opportunities for all sectors to learn from each other, and to share research and information for the greater understanding of the issues of those facing global transition. The 2011 conference theme was: Families in Global Transition: Making a Difference.
FIGT welcomed two outstanding keynote speakers: Dr. Anne Copeland, the opening keynote speaker and Joanne Huskey, the closing keynote speaker. To learn more about these two speakers, click here.
