The Story Behind Kin and Care
I don't know about you but I struggle to find the time to innovate. It's not that I don't have new ideas and a vision for the future. It's just that I spend most of my work days, which are most of my days, checking things off the list and quickly moving from one task to another.
It struck me as important, however, that we play around a bit with our podcast. While editing it back in the fall, I listened to our intro in which we promise to keep you abreast of the ongoings with regard to immigration and migration around the world. I'm not certain we've done a good job of that.
So we're trying something new!
Our newest episode starts with a brief update from me on the global and national news surrounding displacement followed by a quick word from Nell on what's going on behind the scenes at The Off Ramp. These two brief segments are going to introduce each episode moving forward. Or at least until I feel the need to innovate again!
Then we check in with Ferzan Jaeger, founder of Kin and Care—a company that employs refugee women from the Middle East and offers them a career not just a job.
We chat with Ferzan about the challenges of owning and growing a small business like hers as well as the challenges of being a refugee woman in the United States.
Despite these challenges though, Ferzan shares with us some truly exciting news about her company on the pod! We invite you to join us in celebrating her success and her drive to use business for good!
