MPR’s Conversations on the Creative Economy with Jo Ann Jenkins

What does it take to encourage and nurture innovative thinking in organizations? MPR’s Senior Economics Contributor Chris Farrell hosts an in-depth conversation with Jo Ann Jenkins, AARP’s chief executive officer. She is also the author of Disrupt Aging: A Bold New Path to Living Your Best Life at Every Age. Her book is a clarion call for dramatically changing society’s outdated stereotypes about aging. We’ll discuss how the changing conversation on what it means to get older affects the mission and business of AARP. What does creativity and innovation mean at the world’s largest nonprofit membership organization? What does it take to get a gigantic organization to dance nimbly?
