LAS VEGAS — For the first time ever, Women Grow LLC, the largest professional network in cannabis that connects, educates, empowers, and inspires the next generation of industry leaders, has partnered with MJBizCon, the largest conference expo in cannabis, to mark the return of one of the most influential events in the industry. On November 16, 2022, Booth #8848 will be the epicenter of women’s leadership in cannabis as Women Grow LIVE at MJBizCon takes place on the Expo floor from 10:30 am – 4:00 pm. Not since the Women Grow 2019 Leadership Summit has there been such a gathering to celebrate the rise and influence of women redefining the industry and shattering the “grass ceiling.”
Women Grow LIVE at MJBizCon will feature a packed program of signature TED-style “Lightning Talks,” intimate fireside chats, inspiring keynote speakers, and opportunities to network with a community of women, including industry titans, new and emerging leaders, seasoned professionals, and the canna-curious. Sponsors of the day-long event include Cresco, Trulieve, Curaleaf, TILT Holdings, National Cannabis Roundtable, Ilera Holistic Healthcare, Etain, Lantern, Vegas Cannabis Magazine, The Higher Source, Hope (Healthcare Options for Patient Enterprises), The Angarola Minucci Group, Inyo Fine Cannabis Dispensary, Culture & Cannabis, Beautiful Burns Rolling Papers, Toker Poker, The Happiest Hour, RP Collaborations, and BP Editing & Consulting.
Dr. Chanda Macias, Chairwoman, and CEO of Women Grow, who is also on the advisory board for MJBizCon, said, “We remain committed to elevating women in our industry, and being able to bring Women Grow to MJBizCon under this partnership is exciting. The MJBizCon team understood our vision, and for the first time since its inception, we have this incredible opportunity to make HERstory at the largest cannabis event in the world. We could not think of a better example of true allyship.”
“As women continue to play a significant role in our industry, I am pleased that MJBizCon and Women Grow have come together to partner in this unique experience where the next generation of women leaders can feel inspired and empowered by those that paved the way. It is our honor to support a team committed to creating change and shifting the narrative,” said Marijuana Business Daily and MJBizCon Co-Founder Cassandra Farrington.
“We are thrilled to get back to doing what we do best,” said Women Grow President Gia Morón. “Connection is at the heart of Women Grow, and we are looking forward to engaging with our community of women, from the pioneers to the new entrants, at the biggest gathering in cannabis. None of this would be possible without the tremendous support from the MJBizCon team, our sponsors, and internal team. This collaborative effort will provide an amazing opportunity to amplify some of the powerful voices of women in our industry who are doing the work, leading companies, and building businesses. We are certain this experience will change the lives of many, and for that, we are eternally grateful.”
