Women’s History Month is a time to reflect and celebrate the accomplishments of women worldwide, and recognize the limitless strength, creativity and resilience of women as they continue to break barriers. This Women’s History Month, we are showcasing how our member companies are dedicated to creating an inclusive and supportive workplace for women year-round. 

Charlotte-based Coca-Cola Consolidated is recognizing the women on their team through a series called “Inspire Inclusion.” All month, the company is celebrating its female workforce through inspiring tales of inclusivity, leadership and camaraderie.  

Ebony Woods, a member of Consolidated’s public affairs, communications, community relations and sustainability (PACS) team, said, “It’s not just about having a seat at the table. It’s about creating an environment where individuals from diverse backgrounds feel valued, respected and empowered to fully participate in and contribute to the growth and development of their workplace.”  

Keurig Dr Pepper (KDP) is also committed to fostering inclusivity and empowerment in the workplace, recognizing the invaluable contribution of diverse perspectives.  

All month long, Keurig Dr Pepper’s Women & Allies Employee Resource Group is hosting “Empowering Women to Be Bold & Authentic,” a celebration dedicated to telling women's stories and encouraging meaningful conversations. Through guest speakers, KDP is fostering conversations that embrace the unique voices and contributions of their female team members worldwide. KDP has also been recognized by Newsweek as one of America's Greatest Workplaces for Women, a testament to the company’s commitment to an equitable and supportive workplace. 

Similarly, PepsiCo is inspiring, empowering and supporting women this month through its “Dare to Rise” campaign. Through weekly webinars tailored to female employees, PepsiCo is promoting self-discovery, redefining boundaries, honoring individuality and championing confident self-expression. 

Vienna Wong, PepsiCo North America’s senior vice president for strategy and transformation, shared her advice on building career success, saying, “A lot of times, especially women, we tend to be more self-critical…you’re much better off doubling down on your strengths.” 

“Sometimes we believe in you more than you believe in yourself,” added PepsiCo Beverages North America Chief Supply Chain Officer Karen Jordan, speaking on PepsiCo’s supportive culture.
