Indra Nooyi: No economy can succeed without tapping the 'incredible potential of women'
As economies move into a new phase of growth, the next 20 years will be "the decades of women," says former PepsiCo Chief Executive Indra Nooyi. "I don't believe there's any economy in the world that can be successful without tapping into the incredible potential of women going forward. I just don't believe that's possible," said Nooyi, a regular fixture among the ranks of the world's most powerful women. "I also think almost every economy in the world needs women to have children too, because we need the replacement rate for the world," she continued. They need us for the economy, they need us to have kids, and we put in all the unpaid labor so far.cnbc.com
Indra Nooyi has advice for stamping out workplace bias
Indra Nooyi knows what it's like to be the outsider at work. As an Indian woman who kickstarted her career in 1980's corporate America, she had to fight for years to make herself seen before famously taking the helm as PepsiCo's first female CEO in 2006. "I worked harder than anyone else ... so that people didn't look at me as a woman, a woman of color, an immigrant," the 63-year-old said recently at Women's Forum Asia in Singapore. Women and minorities are now better represented in universities and workplaces, and many companies say they are striving for greater diversity and inclusion. But there remains a long way to go, continued Nooyi, who called on fellow business leaders to take a more active role in forwarding progress.cnbc.com
