But we are truly excited to see Fast Company’s list of the 100 Most Creative People in Business in 2015 where even the “bottom” of the list includes amazing innovators in science, technology, family and global health. It is a beautiful diverse group of men and women alike who have lived lives of intent, followed their passion, and in turn, are currently impacting the world for the better.
After the 2012 fast food workers’ strike, Mary Kay Henry organized a nation-wide movement to demand a livable wage for those employees. Cameron Piron is a physicist but he’s bringing the human body to light in new ways with the help of technology. His modified MRI allows brain surgeons to see 3D interactive versions of a patient’s brain to improve diagnosis and surgery precision. Aging is getting easier with the help of brilliant ideas and tools from Aging 2.0’s Katy Fike and, at the top of the list? A treatment for ebola developed from tobacco plants started the year by saving the lives of two America aid workers infected while serving in Liberia. The creator? You may never find him on the cover of a celebrity gossip magazine, but Charles Arntzen, of Arizona State University’s Center for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, is doing work that is immensely important to a global community.
We are so proud of the Top 100, knowing that there are many more who will never be on a list yet they are still doing amazing things to bring purpose, peace and joy to everyone they meet. Maybe you’ll be on the list in 2016? We can’t wait to read all about it!
Get inspired. Read the list here.
