Meet One of Our Everyday Extraordinary Disruptors

An ongoing activist rooted in her community, Hali Lee, 51, believes that arts and culture has the power to advance an equitable society. The cofounder of Faces of Giving and the founder of Asian Women Giving Circle pools resources to fund change makers — specifically, Asian American women artists and community groups. As an age disruptor, Hali had these thoughts to share with Good Housekeeping: “In my mind’s eye, I’m 28 years old … I have the energy and ideas of a younger person with the experience and insight of an older person.” Winning combo!
What’s Going On With Disrupt Aging

The Global Phenomenon of Disrupt Aging
In April, AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins toured Japan and Taiwan to talk about the translation of her best-selling book, Disrupt Aging — and found plenty of fellow disruptors. Retailing group Aeon modified a mall to accommodate its aging customer to better promote products aimed at the “Grand Generation” — and revenues are up 10 percent! Jo Ann visited the Yamano Beauty College in Tokyo, where students are trained to dress women who have limited mobility in their cherished kimonos as a means to preserve their culture. She also toured Ximen Elementary School in Taiwan, where the elders teach Taiwanese history by sharing their life stories. Students learn history, sure, but also culture and values. Meanwhile, the visiting scholars report feeling connected and engaged with the next generation. Disrupting worldwide!
