Colleen Lindholz, President, Kroger Health and 2018 “Inspirational woman of the year” finalist at the 2018 Leonie Awards shared, “In the United States women are driving decisions, defining healthcare and shaping policy more than ever. We see it every day, from the clinics and pharmacies in our more than 2000 stores, to the discussions we all have around the dinner table. At Kroger, we are grateful to play a small role in enabling this dialogue, and we are passionate about empowering diversity of all kinds. Our partnership with the 2019 USA Edition of Break the ceiling touch the sky® will enable some of our highest potential associates to share their personal stories and learn from amazing leaders.”
Commented Umran Beba, SVP, Chief Diversity and Engagement Officer, PepsiCo, “At PepsiCo championing diversity is part of our DNA. In the 1940s, we hired an African American salesforce; in the 1950s, we elected a woman to serve on our Board of Directors; in the 1960s, we promoted Harvey C. Russell to the position of Vice President — the first time a major multinational corporation had appointed an African American to such a position. In the 2000s we named Indra Nooyi, a woman of Color to the Chairman and CEO roles. We know Diversity is critical for growth, innovation, reputation and employee engagement. That is why we were one of the early sponsors of Break the ceiling touch the sky® and are proud of our shared mission of enabling more women and diverse talent to reach the very top roles in leadership.”
