Right now, the cannabis industry is male dominated, however, this won’t always be the case. Marijuana Business Daily reports that the number of women executives in cannabis is 27%, which is higher than the 23% average number of executive positions held by women across all industries nationally.
Tokeativity, is an organization founded by women and strengthened by women; founded in Portland by two women who believe in normalizing cannabis use and empowering women. Britt Gierke, who you will meet below (Willow Billy Farms), is an Ambassador for Tokeativity and provided this information:
“We are currently up to 10 chapters with 135 more on the way! Tokeativity’s mission is to nurture a safe space for women to connect, learn and create. We work to empower women at the root level and forward the normalization of cannabis. Tokeativity is a platform to meet other female entrepreneurs, business owners, and like-minded, stigma-breaking cannababes!”
