Breaking the Grass Ceiling: Women Making an Impact cultivates a difficult and necessary dialogue surrounding the effects the War on Drugs has had on communities of color and supporting more womxn + POC to rise as well as help diversify the rapidly changing cannabis industry.
Humble Bloom Co-founder Solonje Burnett facilitated a conversation between Christine De La Rosa of The People's Dispensary, Mary Pryor of Cannaclusive, Lulu Tsui of REVEL + AMBR, and Sarah Remesch of New Highs, 270M + Viride.
Together they discussed ways to work towards a more inclusive and diverse cannabis industry shining light on some big questions:
* What are actions consumers can take to positively impact the industry?
* What do social equity or restorative justice programs look like?
* What can brands do to effect change ?
