International Women’s Day

Today March 8, 2017 the world celebrates International Women’s Day. McDonald’s Canada has created a video highlighting  women in the Canadian Beef industry. In addition, McDonalds has pledged $1 for every share of their video on their Facebook and Twitter page, to go toward the Canadian Cattlemen’s Young Leaders program.

I personally cannot say enough great things about this program. This program is how the 2 Erika’s met and started this blog. I (Erika Strande-Stewart) was a mentee in the program in 2012 and Erika Fossen was my mentor.

16 successful applicants are selected from all across Canada each year and are paired with a mentor in their specific area of interest within the beef industry. I have had so many memorable experiences and met so many smart people who lead this industry and I am forever grateful to the CYL program for those experiences. Especially for the friendship and Erika and I and our families have developed over the years.

Here is the link to the Cattlemen’s Young Leaders Page if you are interested about ore information about the program! http://cattlemensyoungleaders.com 

It would be great if everyone could share this video tomorrow and help to raise money for this amazing program, so more people can have these experiences.
