cowgirl 30 under 30 class of 2023 cowgirl magazine

Finding talent among the vast arenas we call the Western industry is quite frankly an easy task. It’s who we are. Hardworking, dedicated, and ambitious don’t even begin to describe the motivated young women who are ubiquitous in every facet from sport to corporate, entertainment to media, and from agriculture to adventure. This talent is everywhere. The hard part is whittling the list down to just 30 to comprise COWGIRL‘s newest class of 30 Under 30 recipients.

This overwhelming task is worth it, however, because these annual classes make up the leaders who rise to the top for their dedication to lead the way by opening doors, and sharing enthusiasm and encouragement in everything they do, amongst many other admirable traits.

Now celebrating our fourth anniversary of seeking out and promoting this esteemed group of powerful young women, COWGIRL is extremely proud to introduce the COWGIRL 30 Under 30 Class of 2023.

In celebration, this class will gather in Fort Worth the weekend of March 10, 2023, to be honored at the second annual Wrangler COWGIRL 30 Under 30 Empowered Gala at Hotel Drover in the historic Stockyards. Among invited guests will be alumna from previous 30 Under 30 classes, as well as family, friends, and industry leaders who support the annual program.

Congratulations, Class of 2023! It is an honor to introduce you to many of your peers and those in the industry who will look to you as leaders in this wonderful community we all know and love.
