Meet BCGers

Raising a family looks different for everyone, and comes with different sets of challenges. No matter how common or unique those are, anyone can find a role model and support they need.​​​​​​​

“This network has empowered me to set strong boundaries to protect my precious family time, and I’ve leaned on my fellow Families@BCG members for advice on everything and anything child related. I’m also very thankful for the friendships I’ve formed through this network, in addition to all the new playmates my two kids get as a result.”

Brienne Buhagiar
Events Manager
“The Families@BCG network has been a constant pillar of support for me - especially given the fact that my family moved across continents just before the pandemic. It has helped us build a support system outside family that has often helped with recommendations on child care and activities to keep children engaged. Some of the expert sessions organized by the network helped me learn how my peers were navigating COVID and work-from-home with kids. We have also enjoyed all the events organized by the network and really look forward to the next one!”

“Families@BCG has been a great resource for navigating through the ups and downs of parenting. From getting recommendations for child care or doctors to advice on how to better help my boys in various life stages they are in, to encouragement from one parent to another. Knowing I have a supportive group to turn to in this journey has been a life and sanity saver!”
