“I don’t think women can have it all” Indra Nooyi, Indian born CEO of PepsiCo gives the most honest and inspiring speech about career and motherhood. It’s a must watch moms!!!
Ranked #13 on Forbes’ Power Women’s list, Nooyi spoke with Aspen Ideas Festival about her journey to the top of one of the largest corporations while raising her two children. She didn’t sugarcoat anything and admitted that women can’t have it all. Professional women face so many challenges today.
“My observation…is that the biological clock and the career clock are in total conflict with each other. Total, complete conflict. When you have to have kids you have to build your career. Just as you’re rising to middle management your kids need you because they’re teenagers, they need you for the teenage years.
And that’s the time your husband becomes a teenager too, so he needs you.”
She’s brilliant yet funny and approachable. Hats off to you Indra.
