FIGT Netherlands Affiliate
The Families in Global Transition (FIGT) Netherlands Affiliate was founded in September 2014, by Kate Berger (The Expat Kids Club), Kristine Racine (The Expatriate Archive Center) and Vivian Chiona (Expat Next).
Families in Global Transition 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 mission of FIGT NL is to: bring together representatives of the corporate, diplomatic, academic, religious and military sectors present in the Netherlands to share their cross-cultural coping strategies; encourage the exchange of information between expatriates and professionals involved with global transitions; 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.
