Indra Nooyi Hosts Yale Alumni and Parents
Indra Nooyi ’80 MPPM, chairman and chief executive officer of PepsiCo and a fellow of the Yale Corporation, hosted a dinner September 20 in support of the Yale Tomorrow campaign at the historic Calloway House in the grounds of PepsiCo headquarters in Purchase, New York.
The dinner was attended by some thirty-five alumni and friends in the Fairfield and Westchester County areas. Guests had an opportunity to hear Yale President Richard C. Levin talk about the recent acquisition of the 137-acre West Campus, formerly the Bayer HealthCare Campus, in West Haven, Connecticut. He also discussed the proposal, currently under review by faculty committees, to add two new residential colleges for Yale’s undergraduates.
A question and answer session followed Levin’s talk. The Whiffenpoofs performed for the guests at the end of the evening.
At Yale, Nooyi is a Sterling Fellow and a member of the Yale Tomorrow Campaign Committee. She serves on the President’s Council on International Activities and was a featured speaker at Yale’s Tercentennial and Yale School of Management’s 25th anniversary. She ranks fifth on Forbes’ list of “The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.”
