At KFC, we are marking International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month by celebrating the thousands of women across our business who inspire and motivate us to be our best selves, make a difference, and have fun. Over the course of the month, we will be sharing profiles of a (very) small sampling of these inspirational KFC women. Today, we introduce you to Lucila Cuello.
Chief People Officer, KFC Latin America & Caribbean
I was inspired and am extremely grateful to all the brave women that came before us and have paved the way to a world that, even if far from perfect, is a lot better than it was only 50 years ago. I have great admiration and love for the women in my family and my close friends whom I am lucky to have in my life, supporting and encouraging each other in so many ways. And lastly, I have great respect and appreciation for so many female leaders in our company: those at the global leadership teams, my every day colleagues and fellow CPOs, as well as our tireless, relentless associates in the restaurants. As I was trying to understand the impact of @HeartStyles in our markets, I had the opportunity to listen to some of their stories and witness the way they lead their teams wholeheartedly. I recall Alondra, RGM from Mexico, and Monica, Area Coach from Ecuador, as being absolutely inspiring and uplifting.
It’s a call to action and a reminder that there is still a long way to go. It challenges me to think of ways to make my humble contribution from my corner of the world, understanding that it’s a collective effort from all to try to make this a better world for everyone.
