For all the special women at July, Here’s to You
On this International Women’s Day, we are proud to recognize the extraordinary women of July who are driving the conversation around location technology. They come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, nationalities and cultures but they are united by a singular genius for turning potential into success. These women provide strategic direction, develop new capabilities and lead by example while still making time for their friends and family.

And that’s what July is spearheading!
