PepsiCo India, a leading global consumer packaged goods company recently announced the launch of RevolutioNari – A Revolution for the Nari, aimed at empowering 1 million women nationwide, in partnership with a consortium of organizations spanning 1,000 days. The program is dedicated to building awareness that will enable women to take informed career decisions, provide upskilling opportunities to enhance employability, and unlock direct and indirect opportunities to improve livelihood prospects in unconventional roles like sales, manufacturing, and agriculture within the FMCG sector across levels.

RevolutioNari aligns with PepsiCo India’s pep+ (PepsiCo Positive) philosophy, directly integrating into its key pillars – Positive Agriculture and Positive Value Chain, that guide the company’s future endeavors to positively impact the environment and communities. Positive Agriculture is aimed at improving the livelihoods of people in the company’s agricultural supply chain and communities, with a focus on women’s empowerment. Whereas Positive Value Chain intends to give increased access to degrees, vocational training, and upskilling programs to boost their employability while advancing the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion agenda at the company.

Recognizing the underrepresentation of women in India’s growing economy, PepsiCo India identified the missed potential a decade ago and has worked on building well-recognized programs to promote inclusivity at workplace.

In the first phase of RevolutioNari, PepsiCo India is targeting undergraduate women in multiple disciplines, including STEM and Agriculture, underprivileged women, and senior secondary school students across 100 cities in India. By joining forces with partner organizations and leading corporates, the company will leverage collective expertise and resources to amplify the impact of its RevolutioNari campaign.

So far, PepsiCo India has onboarded ecosystem partner organizations – Nirmaan Organization and The Social Lab Foundation, and Internshala, the tech partners to enable community reach-out for the initiative.

As part of this project, the company is introducing several training programs, including technical skill-building and internships, specifically designed for women in the manufacturing and sales sectors. Building awareness and unlocking direct and indirect livelihood opportunities are integral components of the RevolutioNari campaign. Numerous awareness and frontline hiring initiatives like the Learn Today Give Tomorrow (LTGT) program, Lateral Hiring programs for Managerial and frontline jobs and Internship Programs specially curated to enable young women are being set in motion to achieve a gender-balanced workforce at PepsiCo India by 2026 across all levels. Moreover, a Tripartite MoU with the Assam Skill Development Mission (ASDM) & Directorate of Employment & Craftsmanship Training (DECT) has been signed for upskilling women students from industrial training institutes in Assam to develop a pool of qualified women for front-line plant positions at PepsiCo India.
