Vision for the future of women in the Western industry: My vision for the future of women in the western industry is for them to break the stereotypical chains that limit their opportunities. As the western industry evolves and grows, more and more women are standing up and taking their place as the strong, successful women of influence we know them to be. I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of CattleWomen throughout my personal and professional career and have been witness to the trail of opportunity they leave in their wake. Women are undoubtedly effective caretakers, teachers and partners but they are also successful organization leaders, industry professionals and business owners. When I look to the future, I see women no longer shying away from their dreams due to the previous inaccurate perceptions of their abilities.
