Today is International Women's Day and we'd like to recognize the inspirational women of e-commerce. Ripcord Brands' very own founder, Sandi Richter, is a prime example of one of those amazing ladies. Women play an increasingly important role in shaping the e-commerce marketplace and influencing how we shop online. And more than ever, female consumers look to support businesses that are founded or run by women.
Launched in 2018, Yotpo created Amazing Women in eCommerce to honor female talent and visionaries, establishing a community that empowers current and future female business leaders.
This year's honorees include Ekta Chopra (VP of Tech & eCommerce - e.l.f), JuE Wong (CEO - Moroccanoil), and Dana Testa (Global Head of Commerce, Partner Marketing - Magento, an Adobe Company) just to name a few.
See Yotpo's full list of 2019 Amazing Women in eCommerce Honorees to learn more about these amazing women and their inspirational stories.
In support of this vision, they have raised $20,000 for Girls Inc. which focuses on whole girl development - equipping girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers and grow up healthy, educated and independent. To learn more about this organization visit: girlsinc.org
