MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CleverTap, a leading AI-powered customer lifecycle and user retention platform, is celebrating the success of women leaders in technology with “Inspiring Women,” a new interview-based video campaign. Running through International Women’s Day on March 8, 2020, the series will highlight the stories, journeys, setbacks, and learnings of thirteen of today’s women leaders in marketing, showcasing their accomplishments to encourage and inspire other up-and-coming professional women.

In recent years, strides have been made in relation to women empowerment, but much effort is still needed. International Women’s Day is observed annually on March 8 with a goal of elevating the awareness of equality, providing an opportunity to reflect on gender equality while advocating for women everywhere. “Inspiring Women” presented by CleverTap aims to empower women in technology through impactful videos launching weekly leading up to International Women’s Day.
