"Uber and the ICC aim to leverage one of the world's most popular sports to engage the broader cricketing community in a conversation around the important role sport plays in empowering girls and women around the world," Uber said in a statement.
The global partnership will include on-the-ground activation in participating WWT20 countries, in addition to the creation of a six-part digital film series featuring stories of female cricketers, it added.
The ICC Women's World T20 will be held from November 9-24, 2018. The 10-team tournament will be played as a standalone event for the first time between Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies.
"As a sport, we have also made a commitment to grow the women's game and it will form one of the pillars of our strategy that will be launched early next year...it's (the partnership) about a shared ambition to move women's cricket forward, tell the story of our sport more broadly and build heroes in our game," ICC CEO David Richardson said.
Uber Chief International Business Officer Brooks Entwistle said together with the ICC, the company is committed to supporting more women in sport, and to inspiring and enabling more girls and women to access opportunities.
Earlier this year, the US-based company had roped in Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli as its brand ambassador in India. It had also named footballer Mohamed Salah as the brand ambassador for the Egypt market.
