Pepsico Women's Inspiration Network - My WAHM Plan

Pepsico Women's Inspiration Network

It is always nice receiving feedback on a project you've particpated in. Recently I was invited to take the  PepsiCo Women & Leadership survey. This was a very in depth, thought provoking survey and I was happy to lend my voice.

Here's a recent email I received from SheSpeaks, the company who asked me to participate:

Dear Linda,

Thank you so much for taking the time to participate in our recent PepsiCo Women & Leadership survey. As always, your feedback was incredibly helpful. We had an amazing response to this survey. It shows that female leadership is a hot topic!
What you said:
•71% of women believe that a woman will not win the presidency in 2012
•Most women think the greatest challenge to achieving leadership roles is the perception that women make less effective leaders
•Hillary Clinton was most frequently cited as the most inspirational female global leader, followed by Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey
•The majority of women have no preference between working for a male or female boss
•Women equally rank hard work and the ability to inspire as the most-needed leadership skills, as seen in the chart below
For more information, please visit the PepsiCo WIN site.

Thanks again for participating in this survey. We truly value your feedback and insights.
We look forward to offering you more opportunities to share your voice about products, services and the topics that are most important to you.

Do you agree with the findings? Who inspires you?


  1. I would so love to see a woman become president. Canada technically had a woman Prime Minister at one point, but that didn't last long.

    Unfortunately, all the women currently running for presidency are absolutely terrifying. I'd love to see a feminist woman make it as president. Though, whoever the first woman is, she's going to have a lot of people gunning for her. Sad, but true.

  2. Hi Heather,
    I agree, that if we are to ever have a woman President, she will have to have a strong platform full of fresh, innovative ideas, not just re-purposed polictical rhetoric, then she'll get my vote!


I'd love to hear from you!
