Cannabis is for everyone. Or at least it should be. As an industry, it makes all the right noises about being inclusive, diverse, and actively ‘correcting’ the gender, LGBTQIA+, and BIPOC imbalances associated with other sectors. But is that really what’s happening?
Look around you at any industry event and it’s clear that the majority are still white dudes – many non-suits, but white men nonetheless – especially those in C-suite roles. Like in other sectors, this needs to change. But how can equality be achieved in cannabis? Is cannabis doing a better or worse job of being inclusive than other industries? How can we build the industry we want to see?
