Tokeativity’s Lisa Snyder & Samantha Montanaro were featured in Cannabis MD’s publication, “Meet the Cannabis CEOs Who Are Giving Back to Their Communities”:
“Billed as “the Global Cannabis Community for Women,” this Portland, Oregon-based company holds female-focused cannabis events across America, bringing together women of diverse backgrounds to “connect, learn, and create” all things cannabis-related. Founded by Snyder and Montanaro in 2017, the company now has chapters in eight cities around the world, and aims to add a healthy dose of feminism to the male-dominated cannabis world.
Snyder, a media veteran with experience at companies like MTV and Magnet Media, met Montanaro, who’d previously worked in the cannabis events business, through the cannabis community in Portland — and quickly realized there were few spaces or resources for cannabis-curious women. So, the two decided to take matters into their own hands.
As Snyder told Her Canna Life, “I am obsessed with removing barriers for women of all kinds, helping women find their inner freedom, and being an activist in the consumption movement. I have seen first hand that the work we are doing is liberating women, and my number one priority is supporting women’s liberation.”
The company’s charitable work includes donations to social activism organizations like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, as well as environmentally-oriented projects like Friends of the Columbia Gorge, which aims to keep the massive canyon (which has been designated a National Scenic Area) in pristine condition.”
