Conversations with Women in the Cannabis Industry

Not a Podcast – Not a Webinar – Not an Infomercial. It’s a Conversation!

Everyone has the opportunity to be on screen and unmuted.

We talk amongst our women colleagues in the cannabis industry about the obstacles and inequity we encounter. This is an experience shared by the majority of women in the industry.

WCCC’s goal is to open up the Conversation to women across the country to begin working on solutions, and a future with more representation in C-Suite position and business ownership.

An MJBizDaily report highlights that only 19% of cannabis businesses across Colorado, Massachusetts, Nevada and Ohio are owned by women. Massachusetts, in particular, lags behind with a meager 5% ownership.

A 2021 report published by the National Cannabis Industry Association and The Arcview Group found that only 8% of cannabis CEOs are women. In a 2019 MJBiz Daily report 37% of the executive positions in the industry were held by women. In a 2021 report that number fell to 22.1%.

As the legal cannabis industry grows, the rate at which women are entering the industry is now declining. More women are leaving the cannabis industry.

How do we overcome the obstacles and issues faced by women in the cannabis industry?

How do we move into executive positions?

What can we do to support women cannabis business owners?

What is the future for women in the cannabis industry?

Networking plays a major role in the cannabis industry. It is an opportunity to have conversations about your brand and learn first hand about other brands and services. Networking connects business owners in the cannabis space. 

Networking builds long term business relationships which builds a stronger local cannabis industry. It also connects brands and consumers, building a stronger cannabis community.

Meet & Mingles are smaller networking events, 60-65 guests, creating a comfortable atmosphere for conversations. Snacks, wine and beer are served. A Speaker adds to the conversation with a topic relevant to the cannabis space. 

“No single conversation is guaranteed to transform a company – but a single conversation has the potential to be the conversation that does.”
