"I don't define innovation as limited to technology. It is, for me problem solving. And because we're a direct service organization, I don't think we called it innovation, but there is actually, in fact, an incredible culture of innovation because people walk in the door and they have needs and they have aspirations, and you're, on a daily basis having to think about how you problem solve for those people."
– Claire Casey, President, AARP Foundation
