Upcoming FamilyKind Happenings
Thank You to Everyone for Making Our FamilyKind 9th Annual Awards Benefit & Virtual Symposium Event a Huge Success!
Thanks to your support and that of our generous sponsors and friends, more than 200 professionals from around the world joined together last month to learn about global differences in the practice of family and matrimonial law, including changes seen in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Later in the day, we were joined by friends and colleagues of our honorees: individuals who have demonstrated leadership in supporting families and children through separation and divorce.
FamilyKind is Launching a NextGen Board!
FamilyKind is starting a NextGen Board to expand their mission in supporting families experiencing separation or divorce.
We are looking for individuals who will act as brand ambassadors for the organization and assist in fundraising through outreach and event planning. Please feel free to share this opportunity with any professionals you know who may be interested in joining a board and contributing to a cause that positively impacts families. Candidates from all industries are welcome!

Introduce key concepts related to financial psychology
Explore how to guide our own behavior related to money
Lay out practical strategies for helping clients manage their behavior related to money
Share a formula for facilitating financial conversations
