Next Wednesday, we're co-hosting Minnesota's Women of Weed Celebration featuring a screening of Mary Janes: The Women of Weed. We'll be joined by local CBD & hemp organizations, advocacy groups like Canna.MN and MRMR, and supporters who want to learn and network.
According to a recent article in BizWomen, 'Women occupied 27 percent of executive roles in the burgeoning cannabis industry in 2017, per Marijuana Business Daily, which Forbes points out is better than the 21 percent they hold in traditional businesses.' Better, sure, but still woefully far from parity (especially when you consider, as the article points out, 27% was 35% four years ago). What the marijuana sector needs (like every sector, frankly) is more women.
As women in weed ourselves, we're excited about the opportunities a new industry presents and excited for inspiration from other women leading the way. The film spans topics ranging from social justice to environmental sustainability to medical necessity and shows women at the helm every step of the way.
Join us next week for an exclusive screening of Mary Janes: The Women of Weed, networking, discussion, and local vendor showcase. Tickets are limited and going fast -- get yours now!
