A Message from

Ronald Schellekens

Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer

PepsiCo has a rich legacy of leading with diversity. For decades, we have made our company better and more competitive by building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive space for our associates, business partners, and our society. As we face new challenges in an ever-changing operating environment, advancing this work has never been more critical to our success.

We are charting a new course to drive positive action for the planet and our people as part of our pep+ (PepsiCo Positive) agenda, and remain committed to being transparent about our actions. Currently, we are tracking our progress as a company for two specific goals:

  • Gender Parity: Achieve 50% women in global management roles by 2025.
  • U.S. Black and Hispanic Managerial Representation: Increase U.S. Black and Hispanic managerial representation to 10%, respectively, to mirror workforce availability of the communities where we operate. A goal that is part of our more than $570 million set of commitments to advance racial equality.

As of Q2 2021, we've increased our global female managerial representation to 43%. In the U.S., we've maintained Black and Hispanic managerial representation at 8% and 9%, respectively.

While it’s clear there’s more work to do, I am confident that this increased transparency, coupled with our concerted efforts and dedication, will ensure our diversity journey continues to enable us to fulfill our mission to Create More Smiles with Every Sip and Every Bite.
