No Glass Ceiling at Pepsi

Posted by thelamp on August 17, 2006

Indra Nooyi this week became one of the most powerful women in corporate America, when PepsiCo named her chief executive officer.

Nooyi, a native of Madras, India, has been with PepsiCo since 1994 and has served as the company’s chief financial officer since 2001. With her appointment, PepsiCo becomes the nation’s second-largest company with a female CEO (the largest is the agricultural giant Archer Daniels Midland). Nooyi succeeds Steve Reinemund as CEO; Reinemund will remain the company’s chairman until he retires. Industry analysts applauded her appointment, noting that she has been responsible for many important and profitable initiatives at PepsiCo, including the spin-off of the company’s restaurants and the acquisition of Tropicana and Quaker Oats.

In a nation where women often still aren’t paid what men are paid for comparable work, CMC applauds PepsiCo for choosing a woman to lead it. The glass ceiling may still exist in other companies, but it’s good to see a high-profile company reward results over gender.

    Which part of Is. chapter 1 is being emphasised, the judgements of God or the redemption of God. The references quoted from Ezekiel suggest that the emphasis is on the judgdements of God. God points at sin to prove that there is need for redemption, but His emphasis is on redemption and what He will do for those who would be redeemed. He speaks of the consequences of rejecting redemption by way of faith and repentance with tears in his eyes and not flames. There are two results when God executes judgment. 1. Grace for those who repent 2. Justice for those who do not repent. Today He works to redeem so that all who will may escape in the day of justice. He works through many and varied vessels. (“Some plant, some water, but God gives the increase.”) I would not be too quick to bring railing judgement down on any preacher who ministers hope in the name of Jesus. Remember, Jesus wrote words in the sand to those who were ready to throw stones. William Word Jr., Fellowship of Brothers
