Managing a Global Enterprise: Andrea Jung, CEO of Avon

As part of the View From The Top series from Stanford GSB, Avon Chair and CEO Andrea Jung discusses the challenges of managing a global enterprise with six million independent sales representatives, her own career choices, and what she has learned from serving on the boards of two very successful but different companies, Apple and GE. She is asked about her own cultural history, and how it shaped her leadership of Avon during its rapid global expansion. One of only 15 female CEOs of a Fortune 500 company, she also talks about what she thinks are promising trends for women in senior leadership roles.
