Making the Invisible Visible with Dr. Kimberly Offutt
Today’s episode is a conversation with my friend, colleague, and Podcast Club collaborator and co-host, Dr. Kimberly Offutt. We tell the origin story of how we decided to create the weekly Proximity Podcast Club. The story starts with Kim listening to episode one and calling me to say, “I feel like I was punched in the gut”. Our conversation moves into why community building is part of the process and the value that it brings us. Of course, we also had to dive into Kim’s process of how she is making visible what has been invisible to her in her career. As a 25-year veteran of child welfare, Kim talks about how she is still learning and unlearning things about herself, her values, and who she wants to become in this work.
