I’m excited to announce that Bea Perez (@BeaPerezBea), Coca-Cola’s Chief Sustainability Officer, will be hosting our first ever Coca-Cola Twitter Chat on Monday, April 1 at 4 p.m. ET. In honor of The Daily Beast’s Women In the World Summit on April 4-5, we will be discussing Coke's commitment to women. Join us for a lively conversation about 5by20, our commitment to enable the economic empowerment of 5 million women across our global value chain by the year 2020.


Specifically, 5by20 focuses on the small businesses the company works with in more than 200 countries around the world. From fruit farmers to distributors to retailers to recyclers and artisans, 5by20 aims to help women overcome the barriers they face to business success. Learn more about this initiative and watch inspiring videos on Coca-Cola Journey.
