When businesses are represented by leaders from within the communities they serve, those businesses thrive. PepsiCo and the National Restaurant Association have been honoring successful restaurant industry professionals of diverse backgrounds for 14 years now with the Faces of Diversity Award.
Today on Order Up, Merary Simeon, VP of global diversity, equity, and inclusion at PepsiCo, and Elisia Flores, CEO of L&L Hawaiian Barbecue, join us to discuss the importance of recognizing the health and economic disparities that disproportionately affect minority communities, investing in these communities to counter this, and ensuring diverse voices are represented within every organization.
