SHECANN Summit: Building a better future for the industry
By Berkeley Cannabis Industry Club
The cannabis industry is growing rapidly, but despite the frenzy, it has emerged as an example for other industries in both transparency & equitable representation. However, that progress is threatened as the industry matures.
SHECANN Summit is the premier cannabis conference highlighting and elevating the voices of womxn and people of color as we work to shape this nascent and growing field. In just two years, we’ve connected, educated, and empowered 400+ womxn and allies working in all segments of the cannabis industry and representing 225+ companies.
On March 18, we will be hosting the third Annual SHECANN Summit, a one-day virtual event featuring panels and events with industry leaders, allies, investors and policy makers, all of whom are focused on building a better future for the cannabis industry — one in which womxn and minorities are represented.
SHECANN Summit was founded in 2018 as a partnership between UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and Berkeley Cannabis Industry Club, the most active MBA-run cannabis club in the world.
SHECANN serves as a space to drive real and honest conversations about the rapidly changing cannabis landscape. It is a forum to highlight the strides the cannabis community has taken to build an equitable industry from the ground up, and to ensure that we continue to preserve and advance our lead.
As the mainstream view of cannabis evolves and the regulatory landscape continues to change, we hope attendees use this conference as an opportunity to learn, to network. and to build a better, more equitable future for the industry.

This year’s conference will be fully virtual. But our goal remains the same: to connect, educate, and empower womxn and allies in all segments of the cannabis industry.

Additionally, SHECANN Summit 2021 will provide exciting opportunities for attendees to (virtually) network with one another and make connections with potential investors, co-founders, partners and employees.
