An Inspiring Role Model

by David Meyer

Former CEO and chairman of PepsiCo Indra K. Nooyi offers a career and life retrospective that seeks to inspire women to succeed in the corporate world.

Indra K. Nooyi served as CEO and chairman of PepsiCo from 2006 to 2018, when she lived and breathed the brand. Here, she provides a nuanced perspective, addressing both her ambitions and the work-life balance frustration they generated.

At PepsiCo, Nooyi writes proudly, she expanded the brand without compromising her vision. Her insights into how the corporate world treats women and people of color have a familiar message: Balancing work and family is difficult, men have it easier than women and governments should support caregivers. However, Nooyi has a particularly well-informed perspective because she’s been at the peak of corporate power.
