Women in Cannabis Expo in Denver Colorado
WOMEN IN CANNABIS EXPO MISSION STATEMENT Providing a place for women to come together to network to their fullest potential in the cannabis industry. Let's connect, inspire and learn together. The Women in Cannabis Expo was established to connect women from all over the United States and the World who are currently working in or would like to work within the cannabis industry. Currently, dozens of articles have begun to showcase women in the cannabis industry through cultivation, products, writers, photographers, medical professionals, cooking, dispensaries, makeup products, sexual health and scientific analysis. However more recent data shows that only 8% of women within the cannabis industry are in CEO and other top company positions. The cannabis industry isn't just about cannabis, it's also about new companies and products that include hemp & CBD extracts. It's an industry in its infancy that has significant room for multiple opportunities for women.Let us connect, inspire and learn together.Find Us on social media: Facebook, Instagram, Leafwire, LinkedIn, TikTok, Twitter & YouTube.

- Women in Cannabis Expo
What is in the name W.I.C.E? Woman & women have been advocates, creators, leaders, mothers, founders, business owners and more. We have needed a space within the Cannabis Industry that allows us to come together, share new ideas of what is and isn't working within the cannabis industry. And trust us, there is a lot that isn't working, which includes the reduction of women, minorities and those with disabilities within the cannabis industry in the United States. It's telling that in recent reports, the number of women in leadership roles within the cannabis industry has dropped significantly. Were we surprised to hear this? No. Why? Because woman/women push themselves until they burn out. And this industry so far has been no different from any other. Including lack of gender pay gaps. The cannabis industry has currently failed to provide a full balance for women, minorities, and those with disabilities to join this industry. Right now, the industry has offered businessmen more opportunities. Women make up roughly 12% to 15% of the Cannabis Industry (depending on the report and sources). There is currently no data to reflect what the percent of business owners are minorities or those with disabilities. WICE was created for many reasons and has several goals and objectives. This includes being a woman owned small business event company. The owner and founder had originally entered the cannabis industry to open a testing lab (ancillary services); however, after being at a large cannabis expo in December of 2019 to find the vendors she needed for her lab, she attended a lady’s night. The women had been placed in a room with drinks for a 2-hour mixer with no schedule or keynote speaker. Ms. Westlake thought that was odd, because her past experience with expos from her healthcare background has provided her with a foundation and expectations for trade shows & expos. After her attendance at this expo, Ms. Westlake and her family went on a vacation, whereby she began searching the internet for cannabis expos to attend that were geared towards women. To her surprise, she found none.
