March is Women’s History Month, and we’ve been celebrating women who display great character, courage and commitment throughout the month here at Frito-Lay headquarters. Our Women’s Inclusion Network (WIN) employee resource group has done an amazing job organizing events including a display in our didactic gallery, a clothing drive and a workshop on living with intention and purpose. The month of activities recently concluded with a presentation about motivation, courage and tenacity from author and consumer advocate Erin Brockovich.
Brockovich, who is known for uncovering the chromium water contamination issues in Hinkley, Calif., discussed her difficult journey in life and how it made her the woman she is today. For Brockovich, this journey included single motherhood and overcoming dyslexia among other personal and professional challenges. It was motivating to hear her talk about the importance of “stick-to-it-iveness,” the ability to continue to try to do something difficult or unpleasant. It was especially inspiring for me to hear how she never stopped believing in herself in spite of those challenges.
