Nooyi is expected to write about her childhood in India, her experiences as an immigrant at Yale University’s business school and how she became the rare woman and person of colour to reach the highest levels of corporate power.
She worked at PepsiCo for 24 years, 12 of them as CEO, before stepping down in 2018.
“It is not so much that Indra is a CEO but it is who she is,” Leibovitz said in a statement Wednesday. “I have always been interested in what someone does. Indra has paved the way for so many women in business. As a mother, I would like my three daughters to read her memoir.”
