When Sherry Kiyler was a rookie beat cop in the 1970s, she was issued a skirt and a purse — the latter to hold her two-inch revolver and handcuffs (as if there were any other logical reason...).

While Kiyler hung up her badge earlier this summer as the highest-ranking officer (chief of police) in one of the southwest’s most dynamic cities (Chandler), she still serves as the perfect microcosm of how things have changed — and of the opportunities trailblazers like herself have provided for woman today.

Be it in law enforcement or local leadership, politics or the seemingly-still-male-dominated world of sports broadcasting, the days of women sitting as bystanders to leadership and innovation are, without a doubt, nearing their end.

We present this special section, complete with feature stories from our newsroom and sponsored content via our loyal advertisers, as a celebration of women in business of all types, serving all industries.
