If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to build a business, a community or apply your craft in the cannabis industry, join us in conversation on Friday 21 August. We bring together three womxn in weed who will share their insights into how they transitioned their career into the cannabis industry, what they have had to (un)learn in order to thrive in an often controversial industry, plus they will explore the importance of finding your tribe.
