56 Inspirational Women Leaders in Business to Connect With

Happy International Women’s Day! March 8th is a globally celebrated day honoring the achievements of women across all industries and from all backgrounds. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

The History of International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900s; a time in which there was massive expansion (and resulting growing pains) in the industrialized world. The population boomed, and so did the growth of revolutionary ideologies. Women began rising up and demanding a seat at the table and to be treated as equals instead of accessories. 

The world has witnessed a significant shift in society’s attitude towards women’s equality and their role in business. With more women at the helm of various industries, greater legal equality, and increased visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, women have made great strides throughout the decades — and continue to make strides to this day. 

Amplifying Female Leadership for a Better Future

With this progress in mind, we wanted to shine a light on 56 female leaders in the sales, marketing, and technology space. Not only are these women excelling in their fields, but they are also empowering others to do the same.
