Indra Nooyi, My Life in Full: Work, Family and Our Future
Indra Nooyi on Leadership
Work, family and our future
An urgent call to business and government for change to unleash the economy's full potential and help families thrive
An interview with Indra Nooyi, the trailblazing CEO who transformed PepsiCo
Indra Nooyi, the first woman and person of colour to run a Fortune 500 company - and one of the foremost strategic thinkers of our time, knows how hard life is for working mums. During her career she had to make accommodations to raise her two kids, even though she had a supportive co-parent and reliable childcare.
Now through her book, My Life in Full – Work, Family and our Future, she’s championing an actionable plan that brings together companies, countries, families and societies to make balancing career and family more manageable.
Indra transformed PepsiCo during her 12 years as CEO with a unique vision, a vigorous pursuit of excellence, and a deep sense of purpose.
Now, in a rich memoir, brimming with grace, grit, and good humour, she offers a firsthand view of a legendary career and the sacrifices it so often demanded.
During this book club interview, Indra will share the events that shaped her - from her childhood in 1960s India, to the Yale School of Management, to her rise as a consultant and corporate strategist who ascended into the most senior executive ranks.
She will offer an intimate look inside PepsiCo, detailing how she steered the iconic American company toward healthier products and reinvented its environmental profile without curbing financial performance - despite resistance at every turn.
In this book club event, she’ll provide an unvarnished take on the competing pressures on her attention and time, and what she learned along the way, to inspire women everywhere to believe that they, too, can climb to powerful roles without giving up on the desire for a family and children.
