Women Grow

“Women Grow was created to connect, educate, inspire and empower the next generation of cannabis industry leaders by creating programs, community and events for aspiring & current business executives. Founded in 2014 in Denver, Women Grow serves as a catalyst for women to influence and succeed in the cannabis industry as the end of marijuana prohibition occurs on a national scale.”

Women Grow, Humboldt Chapter

Women Grow is officially going on in Humboldt County!

– Liesl Finker –

Personal connections are the key to professional success, not only in the traditional business world but in the cannabis industry as well.

Through Humboldt’s chapter of Women Grow Networking Events, women are able to have face-to-face interactions and establish business relationships with one another in the cannabis industry. While our events are women-focused, our networking series attracts (and invites) both men and women.

At the networking events, you’ll meet women (and men) at many different stages in their cannabis careers. Members that attend the events have a range of knowledge about the cannabis industry. Some members are just in the beginning stages, while others have dived right in and bring with them decades in the movement. Everyone who attends is sure to gain something special from the connections made.

Women Grow hosts professional networking events and local social mixers. We focus on education, where aspiring horticulturists can connect with current cannabis professionals. Continuous knowledge is critical to success in the cannabis industry.  With local city, county and state regulations constantly shifting, timely and accurate information is crucial to maintaining a successful business.  Women Grow provides members with relevant information from experienced community leaders regarding current trends in the cannabis industry.

Women Grow connects aspiring newcomers to experienced producers. Monthly meetings help members develop bonds and knowledge through personal connections and business networking. Those who are experienced in the cannabis industry attend meetings and share their knowledge on the subject. These are quickly becoming not-to-miss events!

As the cannabis industry grows, not only in Humboldt but on state, federal, and even global scales, women have the opportunity to build a new cannabis industry and redefine our place in the workforce.  It is now our chance to create an environment in which we can thrive and brand our future.

Women Grow Networking Events occur on the first Thursday of every month. The plan is to rotate meetings to different locations throughout Humboldt in order to give people from all over the county an opportunity to attend.

  Our next chapter meeting will be located at the Clarke Museum in Eureka at 6:00pm on Thursday, May 7th. This meeting will focus on the steps it takes to become a legal vendor in California. There will be a step-by-step guide on how to obtain all the information needed, as well as helpful tips on how to sell your product to dispensaries.
