Loida Nicolas Lewis, business leader, part 2


This week on Pinoy Pod, Part 2 of our two-part interview with Filipino American business executive Loida Nicolas Lewis, chairwoman and chief executive officer of TLC Beatrice LLC and TLC Beatrice China and Philippines. A native of Sorsogon, Philippines, Lewis recently became the first Filipino and the first woman to be inducted into the Asian Hall of Fame in Seattle.
Lewis took over TLC Beatrice in 1994. That was a year after the untimely death of her husband,
Reginald F. Lewis, who had built the company into the largest African American-owned corporation in America.
In this podcast with The Chronicle's Michelle Louie, Lewis talks about women in politics, particularly how she has joined Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign effort.
Also, she speaks about her love for Reginald Lewis, the fate of "Harry Potter" and how she successfully sued the Immigration and Naturalization Service for discrimination.
