She is PepsiCo: Celebrating Women Working in Supply Chain

Gartner survey of women in supply chain

Research from Gartner in 2023 showed women made up 41% of the total supply chain workforce, up from 39% in 2022. The same survey also found when you look specifically at frontline representation in the supply chain workforce, women filled just 31% of these roles. Women account for about half of the U.S. labour force, but represent less than one-third of the manufacturing workforce.

A goal of the She is PepsiCo campaign is for the company’s workforce to mirror the communities where it operates. This is reflected in PepsiCo’s Supply Chain senior leadership. Karen Jordan is the Chief Supply Chain Officer for PBNA, and Laura Maxwell is the Chief Supply Chain Officer for PepsiCo Foods North America (PFNA). Jordan began her career at PepsiCo as an Integrated Planning Manager in New York in 2002, while Maxwell kicked off her career at PepsiCo as a Plant Project Engineer in Iowa in 1989. Jordan and Maxwell collectively lead nearly 100,000 frontline employees spanning operations, transportation, and manufacturing for PepsiCo’s $55 billion North American business units (in 2023 net revenue).

Women growing careers in PepsiCo supply chains 

The She is PepsiCo campaign demonstrates how women can build and grow a meaningful frontline career at PepsiCo supported by the tools and culture to nurture their continued development.

“Getting more women to apply for frontline roles isn’t just beneficial for the employees, their families and the communities where we operate — it’s also important to our business,” said Becky Schmitt, Chief Human Resource Officer, PepsiCo. “PepsiCo wants women to clearly see the career opportunities that are available to them and hear from the women who are thriving in frontline careers, and beyond. We hope people who see these trucks in markets around the world will be inspired to apply for a role at PepsiCo.”
