Women's Cannabis Chamber of CommereThe Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce mission is to move entrepreneurs beyond empowerment into powerful result driven career strategies, CEO positions and business ownership; to provide education, resources, and networking opportunities.

The Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce’s goal is to connect companies and entrepreneurs in the cannabis marketplace with their consumer base to build a strong and stable cannabis industry and cannabis community.

The Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce focuses on building business and professional success through executive and entrepreneur business workshops, executive dinners, Blunts, Buds & Brunches, and holiday high teas.

 

Women's Cannabis Chamber of CommerceA “seat at the table” is defined as “a position as a member of a group that makes decisions”. 

The phase “seat at the table” is a constant in conversations with women in the cannabis industry. In the beginning of the adult-use cannabis industry there was a naivete among women that this new start up industry would welcome and embrace our talents, expertise and skills. Nine years after the first recreational sale 19.9% of ALL cannabis businesses are woman owned. The number of cannabis businesses in 2017 was estimated at 28,000. More recent stats were not available. Based on the Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce’s email lists of plant touching businesses, I am estimating the 2023 number is approximately 42,000. 19.9% is 8,358. We do not have a seat at the table.

In 2022 women held 23.1% of CEO positions in the cannabis industry. In the mainstream sector in 2021 it was 29.1%. We do not have a seat at the table.

Throughout history women have fought for basic human rights, legal rights, and even the right to make our own choices about our bodies. We have never fought with weapons or violence. We have fought with our voices.

One woman’s voice is not enough to get us a seat at the table. All our voices together combined with our knowledge and experience can change the numbers.

The cannabis space is home to several women’s groups, associations and organizations. Find your tribe and find your voice. 

As a business organization, the Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce is invested in the financial success of women entrepreneurs and the growth and expansion of their companies and careers. We know that each successful woman has opened the door for other women. Open the door for a friend with a simple gesture. When you join with a Start-Up Membership ($150 per year) we will give you a second membership for a friend.  This opportunity will expire on January 01, 2024.
