2021 Confluence Overview

In November, 2021, Women in Ranching and the Good Meat® Camp for Women teamed up to virtually gather together women who were working at every level of our meat supply chain while also caring for land, animals and community. From women who were stewarding our rangelands to butchers and chefs working to build resilient, local meat economies, and everyone in between, we invited over 200+ women and women-identifying folks to share knowledge, collaborate, and inspire one another over the course of two and half days. 

We curated a virtual experience that guided participants on a shared journey to increase our collective hope and impact. Each day at the Confluence, we stepped over fence lines and stretched our imaginations, with inspiring keynotes, presentations, networking sessions, and plenty of practical education, as well as a few other surprises along the way.
