Senior Legal Council, PepsiCo

It’s Brian Nurse’s hope that when people attend events like the recent
Black Enterprise Pepsi Golf & Tennis Challenge, they use the time
to engage in dialogue with one another. As senior legal council for
PepsiCo, Nurse knows that movers and shakers in the business world tend
to lose touch with each other, especially in the African American
community.


“[As] part of our diversity initiative, we feel that [events like this]
are an avenue where we send a message about developing young African
American executives,” he says. “[We bring them] to an event like this
for networking and social purposes outside of the normal seminars and
conferences you normally have.”

Aside from conferences like this year’s golf and tennis challenge,
PepsiCo is known as a global leader in business. Nurse notes that the
company prides itself in being a business that caters to a diverse
customer base, but more important within that practice rests a deeper
concern.


“One of the main things we talk about over at PepsiCo is not only
having a customer base that’s so diverse, but we need our workforce to
look that way, as well,” he says. “Coming to events like this to
support any sort of diversity is ideal from a business standpoint [and]
strategy standpoint. This is just an obvious fit.” gavin philip godfrey
