BGRS to Participate in FIGT2022 Conference

January 31, 2022

BGRS’s Sharon Nakpairat and Andrea Rafi will host a session discussing the evolution of intercultural support in a post-pandemic world.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, mobility teams were challenged with understanding where their mobile employees were, what was happening to their families, and finding new ways to support them in the pandemic world.

Families in Global Transition (FIGT) will be hosting its annual conference, FIGT2022, virtually on March 24-27, 2022. This year’s theme, “Where do we go from here?”, revolves around the short- and long-term effects of the pandemic. Some of these effects include a change in social, racial, economic, and environmental reckoning and are affecting mobile employees globally. The three-day event is designed with a variety of presentations, workshops, interactive discussions, and keynote sessions.

BGRS’s Sharon Nakpairat, Senior Global Operations Manager, Mobility Experience Solutions, Intercultural and Language, and Andrea Rafi, Manager, Intercultural Training Innovations and Networks, will be presenting at the FIGT virtual conference. Using data collected through BGRS’s 2021 Talent Mobility Trends Survey, the session will focus on how global mobility has gained significant traction over the last year and what it means for interculturalists.

Session topics include:

  • How organizations responded to and supported mobile employees and their families
  • Insights on the lasting psychological and emotional impact on mobile employees and their families
  • New tools, certifications, and solutions in the intercultural field

FIGT is a welcoming forum for globally mobile individuals, families, and those working with them. The organization promotes 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.
