It’s Women’s History Month. We get really excited about it at the start of March, and then it drops off. We get busy and we forget that it should be a month long event. Well, 365 days a year, but that’s for another day.

There are so many women doing so many great things. I wanted to take a moment to highlight a few of them.

I asked our Analytics for Marketers Community who we should be paying attention to. These are the women they told me about:
