The first woman, person of colour, and immigrant to run a Fortune 50 company, Indra Nooyi redefined what it meant to be an exceptional leader.
As the trailblazing former CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi steered the iconic American company toward healthier products and reinvented its environmental profile without curbing financial performance – despite resistance at every turn. Now she joins How To Academy to offer a first-hand account of her legendary career – and clear-eyed insight into how society can advance women in the twenty-first century.
In this livestream, In Conversation event, Indra will share the events that shaped her – from her childhood in 1960s India, to the Yale School of Management, to her rise into the most senior executive ranks, all while building a home with her husband, daughters, and extended family.
Don’t miss this unvarnished take on the competing pressures on her attention and time, and what she learned along the way. Her story is not a call for women to simply try harder, but is proof of the importance of organised care structures in all of our success. She will make a clear, actionable, urgent call for business and government to prioritise the care ecosystem, from skilled care networks to zoning policy, to paid leave and flexible and predictable work hours, each so critical to unleashing the economy’s full potential and helping families thrive.
