Women in Cannabis: leading the industrial gender revolution by example

The cannabis space provides the first real opportunity in a generation to build an industry with equity at the forefront of the conversation. In order to create an industry where women are policy leaders, executives and wealth creators, cannabis will need to defy the gender norms we see expressed in every single other industry.

Each and every time we further gender parity in this space, the lessons learned from building a balanced industry are directly applicable to already established industries, like tech and finance, where men traditionally dominate.

This fireside chat/presentation, led by Initiative founder Amy Margolis is part strategy session and part deep dive aimed at empowering women to be successful in cannabis, developing actionable mechanisms for building inclusion and equity in cannabis and beyond, and realizing the global impact of more women in positions of leadership and power.
